Book Description

18 Aug 2010
The Group began the twentieth century with a desire to challenge what they felt were the religious, artistic, social and sexual taboos of Victorian England. Together they created a revolution in British style that resonates with contemporary painters, writers, actors, designers, fashion editors and publishers. The Group began the twentieth century with a desire to challenge what they felt were the religious, artistic, social and sexual taboos of Victorian England. Together they created a revolution in British style that resonates with contemporary painters, writers, actors, designers, fashion editors and publishers. This book explores the impact of Bloomsbury personalities on each other, as well as their legacy to the twenty-first century. Author Frances Spalding demonstrates how this network of artists, lovers and patrons recorded one another obsessively in both words and images. She presents over twenty fascinating biographies, all of which are illustrated with paintings and intimate photographs created by members of the Group. It includes previously unpublished photographs from the albums of the generous and influential hostess and patron of the arts, Lady Ottoline Morrell. Highlighted in her revealing account are: Virginia and Leonard Woolf, Vanessa and Clive Bell, Duncan Grant, Lady Ottoline Morrell, Roger Fry, J.M. Keynes, Lytton Strachey and Dora Carrington.

5.0 out of 5 stars A superb production 21 April 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Whether you are interested in the Bloomsbury Group as artists, writers or extraordinary characters, this book is an essential summary of what all the fuss is about. The reproductions of the portraits of the members of the group are outstanding; one could only wish that they were larger and that the text was longer, but I suppose this would have made the book much more expensive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bloomsbury In A Nutshell. 3 Aug 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
As a longstanding devotee of everything to do with 'The Bloomsbury Group', I have a great many books, collected over years, detailling each & everyone in and around this remarkably talented 'set'. This book, however, is a delightful addition, with many photographs & information which would be especially useful for someone new to the subject, as would certainly "wet one's appetite" for more. The biographies are concise, but excellent and the book, overall, gives a good insight on these wonderful 'bohemians'.
