Stefan Themerson

Stefan and Franciszka Themerson were Polish avant-garde artists and filmmakers who in the 1940s fled to London, where they worked on a huge range of creative projects. In 1948, they founded the influential Gaberbocchus Press, publishers of Kurt Schwitters, Jankel Adler, and Alfred Jarry, among others. Barbara Wright was a translator and art writer who worked closely with the Themersons and also translated key works of 20th-century French literature into English, including Alfred Jarry’s Ubu Roi.
