A collection of artists who flourished in during the 1920s and 1930s are being featured in a new exhibition which aims to revive their reputations.

The work of the East London Group of Artists was highly regarded and was displayed alongside the works of Pablo Picasso during Britain's inter-war period.

BBC London's Arts Correspondent Brenda Emmanus spoke to David Buckman, author of From Bow to Biennale: Artists of the East London Group, Alan Waltham from the East London Group and Rosamond Murdock, director of the Nunnery Gallery.
