Jacob Kramer: Creativity and Loss



The first biography of a significant artist difficult to ‘pigeon hole’ in the history of twentieth-century British art.  A Jewish immigrant, Kramer was a contemporary of David Bomberg, Mark Gertler and Bernard Meninsky, as well as such rising names as C R W Nevinson and William Roberts.   In his early work Kramer sought, through reductive, stylized images, to explore what it meant to be Jewish. He brought a distinctive style, energy and simplicity of design to the British art scene; there is a quality in his art that remains defiantly Eastern European.
