This is the story of Willy Tirr (1915-1991), artist and refugee from Nazi Germany who became Head of Fine Art at Leeds Polytechnic. Willy's personal story is set against the background of those turbulent years in which many changes took place in British society and in the development of art and art education. Willy was a very fine abstract expressionist painter, especially inspired by the Yorkshire landscape. Now little known it is hoped that the book will attract a wider audience to his work.
