The first biography of Jacob Kramer, a significant artist difficult to ‘pigeon hole’ in the history of twentieth-century British art.
A Jewish immigrant, Jacob Kramer was a contemporary of David Bomberg, Mark Gertler and Bernard Meninsky, as well as such rising names as C R W Nevinson and William Roberts. In his early work Kramer sought to explore what it meant to be Jewish through his stylized imagery.
Kramer brought a distinctive style, energy and simplicity of design to the British art scene however there is a quality in his art that remains defiantly Eastern European.
