The London Group of TIAMSA – The International Art Market Studies Association and the Insiders Outsider Festival invite you to a private tour with Sue Grayson Ford MBE curator of the Brave New Visions exhibition at Sotheby’s.

Featuring over 40 paintings and sculptures, alongside unique documentary material, the exhibition reveals how a group of émigrés who had found sanctuary in Britain in the 1930s revolutionised Britain’s art world, introduced avant-garde European and British artists to the broader public and founded some of the best known establishments on the London art scene.

Entry is free and all are welcome – but we warmly encourage non-members to join the Art Market Studies Association (
