Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
This collection of papers relates primarily to the work of German-born art and architecture historian Nikolaus Pevsner during the 1960s and 1970s, including publications and speaking engagements, pedagogical research, and his membership on boards and committees, such as the Council of Bauhaus.
Art and architectural historian Sir Nikolaus Pevsner was born in Germany in 1902. He worked with the Dresden Gallery (1924-1928) and taught at Göttingen University (1929-1933) before emigrating to England in 1933. In England Pevsner taught at Birkbeck College (University of London) and the Courtauld Institute, and lectured as the Slade Professor of Art at Cambridge (1949-1955) and Oxford (1969) Universities.
