A loan exhibition – Frank Auerbach @ The Offer Waterman Gallery

 

Auerbach

Frank Auerbach was just eight years old when his parents sent him to England to escape Nazi Germany. He never saw them again.

With their tortured strokes, gashes of colour and alien yet familiar faces which strain from beneath the thick paint, the correlation between the death of his parents in a concentration camp and Auerbach’s collection is all too clear to see. Yet, astonishingly, it is not the case. Auerbach insists that his youth, which he can barely remember, hasn’t played a role or had any influence over his art.
