Black and Asian artists in inter-war London

AHRC research funding for Caroline Bressey

Black and Asian artists in inter-war London

Dr Caroline Bressey has been awarded Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) funding to support a new two-year project, Drawing over the Colour Line: geographies of art and cosmopolitan politics in London 1919 - 1939.


Examining the archives of art collections as well as personal papers, autobiographies and memoirs, the project will recover the lives of Black and Asian men and women who worked as artists and artists' models in London between 1919 and 1939. It will seek to understand the role they played in the changing artistic, social, cultural and political spaces that developed in Inter-War London.  Dr Gemma Romain, Research Associate for the project, will join the Department from January 2012.
