Members of the Sassoon dynasty, the 'Rothschilds of the East', and their business associates settled in England at the turn of the last century where they aspired to become part of the establishment, spending their wealth on grand homes and valuable collections.
Lyn Julius will talk about such personalities as Sir Philip Sassoon, who hobnobbed with kings, ministers and artists; Hannah Gubbay, Sir Percival David, Rachel Beer and others. Are the Saatchis and the Reuben brothers today's plutocrats from Baghdad?
The Event will be held in English
