The Oscar Nemon Studio Museum and Archive off The Ridgeway on Boars Hill is open on the last Saturday of every month from 2.30 to 5.30, and otherwise by private booking for groups.
Saturday visits for 2022 are 30 April, followed by 28 May, 25 June, 30 July, 20 August, 24 September, 29 October, and 26 November. Visits are free and allow people to explore the works of sculptor Oscar Nemon, who sculpted both Freud and Churchill from life, on the site where he lived from the 1940s until his death in 1985. Visitors will be given a guided tour of the exhibition of his works during the 1940s, when he lost almost all his family to the Holocaust in Yugoslavia, but nonetheless manage to create a new life for himself in Oxford and London. There is a separate guided tour of how he made his work in the recreation of his studio. They will then be free to explore the archive, and see the drawings and sketches from which he made his works.
Tea, coffee and cake are all provided. Please follow this link to book: https://calendly.com/nemon-studio/nemon-...
We welcome interest from researchers wanting to explore the archives, details of which can be found via www.oscarnemon.org.uk, and from local schools and educational institutions interested in booking visits for students and artists.
