The British Bauhaus? JP Hully and an unwritten history of British Modernism


This is the first refereed article that presents the life and work of JP Hully, a British modernist that worked with Gane furniture manufacturers in Bristol. His design life and tenure at Gane overlapped with that of Marcel Breuer. Both historical and historiographal, this article probes the remaining historical shards of JP Hully’s work, career and life, while making wider historiographical statements about the gaps, absences and silences of history.
