René Gimpel in Conversation with Sue Grayson Ford
(online, Sunday 25 Oct 5pm GMT)
Insiders / Outsiders, the UK arts festival celebrating refugees from Nazi Europe and their contribution to British culture, will start a new online programme on Sunday 25 October with a conversation between René Gimpel of London art gallery Gimpel Fils and Sue Grayson Ford MBE.
The conversation will be about the landmark ruling made at the end of September by a French court of appeal that three paintings by André Derain, seized during the Nazi Occupation of France, must finally be restituted to the family of the original owner – René Gimpel’s grandfather, the eminent Paris art dealer René Gimpel, who died at Neuengamme concentration camp in 1945. The family’s campaign to reclaim other looted artworks continues.
