These four paintings were originally displayed in the first corridor and in Room 1 of the exhibition space in Somerset House when the exhibition was first held in London 2015. Accompanying each painting is a short audio essay together with two additional audio narrations describing the history of the Jewish community in Britain and the early days of the Ben Uri gallery. The audio clips were originally part of the audio guide used by visitors to the exhibition.
