Good, informative, but quite sparse. An introduction only, which gave a fairly acceptable and helpful basis to search for further knowledge.

This review is from: The Bloomsbury Group (National Portrait Gallery Insights) (Hardcover)
This book explores the impact of Bloomsbury personalities on each other, as well as their legacy to the twenty-first century. The author demonstrates how this network of artists, writers, lovers and patrons recorded one another obsessively in both words and images. She presents many 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 It includes previously unpublished photographs from the albums of the influential hostess and patron of the arts, Ottoline Morrell. Even for someone who was a Bloomsbury novice prior to this book, I found the stories very interesting and the pictures amazing. Definitely recommended.
