Description:

192 pages. Hardcover with dustjacket. New book. BIOGRAPHY. German-born artist Hellmuth Weissenborn (1898-1982) spent the first half of his life in his native Leipsig and the second in London. He was forced to flee his homeland in early 1939 in the face of Nazi terror and found refuge in Britain. Unlike many of his fellow refugees, he never lost his sense of German heritage. In this biography, the cultural baggage that he brought with him is explored: life in Weimar Germany, especially in the book arts, is the cultural context of his early life. New unpublished material in the form of Weissenborn's World War I diary, letters from his first wife, and interviews with his former students and colleages help to give an impression of the man and his life in this first full biography of the artist. Family photographs that survived his exile underpin the narrative of his life, while his versatile artistic output is reflected in the many illustrations.
