Grete Marks – also known as Margret Marks or Margarete Heymann – was one of the earliest female students of the Bauhaus School.

About

This exhibition celebrates a lesser known aspect of the artist’s creative practice through a series of intimate portrait paintings and drawings from the 1920s and 1930s. Marks is best known for founding the Hael-Werkstätten pottery in Germany – examples of which will also be included in the exhibition – and later for her ‘Grete Pottery’ created in the UK after emigrating in 1938.

The exhibition marks the centenary of the foundation of the Bauhaus in 1919 and is free to enter.

Part of Insiders/Outsiders, a nationwide arts festival taking place throughout 2019 to celebrate refugees from Nazi Europe and their contribution to British culture.
