Considered one of Britain’s greatest living artists, Frank Auerbach has been based in North London for his entire career, spanning over fifty years. Auerbach was born in Berlin in 1931, to Jewish parents. In 1939 they sent him to England to escape the Nazis as part of the Kindertransport programme, where he has lived ever since. His parents died in a concentration camp.
