We take a look at the fascinating life and work of Jewish artist and refugee Josef Herman OBE RA.
Broadening Our Scope
We are broadening the scope of our Getting Back Out There campaign with a special arts based event, in partnership with the Josef Herman Foundation. Join us for a Guided Walking Tour to celebrate the life of the Polish Jewish refugee artist who fled the Warsaw ghettos, finding a safe home in Ystradgynlais, South Wales.
Josef Herman OBE was a highly regarded Polish-British painter born in 1911. The Heritage Trail showcases the Ystradgynlais mining community during the 1940s and 1950s; his bold, distinctive work documenting the lives of miners, farmers and metal workers.
