The Jewish German artist (1898 - 1998) was awarded the German grant state prize for painters in 1930. However a few years later he had to flee the Nazi regime when his name was included on Geobel's list of degenerate artists. He moved to Britain and built up a reputation painting murals on Anglican churches and public buildings. The mural at St Mark's was painted in 1963. For years since the closure of the church for worship in 1973 the mural has been hidden from public view although the building was used an an outpatient department till 2005. The mural is now recognised as a significant art work of the the Century.
