Connaught Mews, Marble Arch, W1. Watercolour drawing. An avalanche of domestic debris illustrates the disruption to daily life caused by bombing during the Second World War. Joseph Batò was born in Hungary and studied art in Paris under Henri Matisse. He arrived in London during the late 1930s as a refugee from the Nazis. In 1942, his wartime drawings were published in the book 'Defiant City: drawings of bombed London'. After the war, Batò remained in London and worked in the film industry. He was production designer, costume designer and art director on several films including The Third Man, and The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp.
