Painter Frederick (Bedrich, Friedrich, Fritz) Feigl was born in Prague, Czechoslovakia - the many versions of his first name underlining his trajectory as an emigre through many different countries. He studied briefly at the Academy of Arts in Prague, at the Antwerp Academy (1904–5), and in Paris, afterwards living in Hamburg (1910) - establishing a significant reputation in Germany - and in Palestine (1932). He returned to Czechoslovakia in 1933 and settled in England in 1939. He exhibited at the Wertheim Gallery (1940) and Czechoslovak Institute, London (1944), but although he spent almost half his life in Britain, he exhibited most often frequently within emigre circles and with Ben Uri (1959 and 1964), where he was also a member of the Arts Committee during the 1950s.
