Arnold Auerbach (1898-1978) was a highly accomplished Modern
British painter, sculptor and printmaker, noted especially
for his paintings of London street scenes in the 1920s and
his Modernist sculptures, drawings and prints made in the
late 1920s and 1930s which showed the influence of Cubism.
He was born in Liverpool and studied at Liverpool School of
Art. After war service he moved to London in 1921 and
exhibited at the Royal Academy from 1923, also with the
Chenil Galleries, Goupil Gallery and the Walker Art Gallery
in Liverpool. Auerbach taught at Beckenham School of Art in
the early 1940s and later at the Regent Street Polytechnic
and then Chelsea School of Art. He wrote several books on
sculpture including 'Sculpture, a History in Brief'
published in 1952, and is represented in public collections,
including by two works in the Tate Gallery.
