Biographical Information

Samson Schames came from an old Frankfurt family. Trained in the Staedelschule, he stood at the beginning of his career, when National Socialism began. After emigrating to London he created collages and mosaics from found materials and debris, which urgently convey the greyness and destruction under bombardment and during his internment in the Huyton Alien Internment Camp. The works created a break-through at that time in their bold forms for abstraction.
