Bloomsbury Women: Distinct Pictures in Life and Art
More than an artistic and literary style, the world of Bloomsbury was a group of original and creative individuals whose lives have long captured the public imagination. Virginia Woolf, Vanessa Bell, Dora Carrington, Vita Sackville-West, Lydia Lopokova, Katherine Mansfield, Frances Partridge, Angelica Garnett: these were the exceptional women of Bloomsbury. Their writings, letters, diaries, and memoirs offer vivid accounts of friendship, love, art, jealousy, suicide, gossip, and day-to-day affairs over 40 years. Biographer Jan Marsh traces the Bloomsbury Group, from its beginnings in the early years of the 20th century to the old age of its founders. Illustrated throughout with archival material, Bloomsbury Women presents a delightful collection of portraits, decorative images, drawings, and photos that complement the story of the lives and loves, the art and ideas of this legendary group of friends.
