“Here we have Alice Cohn who was not allowed to exist, she is in hiding in Amsterdam. Now what does she do? She forges day and night, she forges everything you want, whether it’s a permit to have a car, whether it’s a permit to be out on the street, whether it’s a permit that you’re a gentile.

David Bomberg

david bomberg: prophet in no man’s land (3rd of 3 episodes of britain at war: bomberg, sickert and nash) presented by andrew graham-dixon

In the years preceding 1914, David Bomberg, Walter Sickert and Paul Nash set out to paint a new world, but, as the century unfolded, found themselves working in the rubble.
David Bomberg is now recognised as the most startlingly original British painter of his generation, but died in obscurity more than half a century ago.
A Jewish immigrant from London’s east end, his early modernist works pushed art to its limits.
Fighting at the Somme, David Bomberg watched the world splinter and fall apart just like the works of art he had created. Bomberg spent the rest of his life searching for order in an increasingly disordered world, and his wanderings took him as far as Palestine, before he settled at the end of his life in Ronda, Spain.
When he died in 1957, embattled and in poverty, he seemed to be no more than a footnote in the history of British art. However, the works that survive David Bomberg tell their own story. Combative and iconoclastic, he remains the most elusively original British painter of the 20th century.”
