Bloomsbury at Home

Overview

Fascination with the Bloomsbury group continues unabated. This famous circle of friends-Virginia and Leonard Woolf, Vanessa Bell, Maynard Keynes, Lytton Strachey, Dora Carrington, Duncan Grant, and others-has become synonymous with devotion to the arts, acerbic wit, liberal ideas, and outrageous sexual frankness. In Bloomsbury at Home, for the first time, readers can experience this group visually-through their paintings, sketches, family photographs, and new photography of their homes and studios.

Overview

Fascination with the Bloomsbury group continues unabated. This famous circle of friends-Virginia and Leonard Woolf, Vanessa Bell, Maynard Keynes, Lytton Strachey, Dora Carrington, Duncan Grant, and others-has become synonymous with devotion to the arts, acerbic wit, liberal ideas, and outrageous sexual frankness. In Bloomsbury at Home, for the first time, readers can experience this group visually-through their paintings, sketches, family photographs, and new photography of their homes and studios. Pamela Todd takes readers inside this notorious circle of British writers and artists for an intimate look at their private lives, their elaborate parties, and their unconventional homes and domestic arrangements. Using generous quotations from their diaries and letters, Todd re-creates life among this memorable group of individuals who dared to defy the restrictions of polite London society at the turn of the 20th century-and who still arouse interest and curiosity today. 100 illustrations, 80 in full color, 8 1\8 x 10 1/2"

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Published as a catalog to accompany a traveling exhibition at the Tate Gallery, London, the Huntington Library, San Marino, CA, and The Yale Center for British Art, The Art of Bloomsbury focuses on the artists of this circle, which flourished in England during the first decades of the 20th century. In three scholarly essays, the artists Vanessa Bell, Duncan Grant, Clive Bell, and critic Roger Fry are discussed in terms of their relationship to French modernist art and abstraction. Also emphasized is the vision of ritual and ceremony and the dreamlike quality of the Bloomsbury artists' work, which had its roots in the tradition of the 19th-century high Victorian imagination. A catalog of beautiful color illustrations of all art objects in the exhibition is divided up chronologically and thematically, with each section accompanied by a short introductory essay. Highly recommended for all art libraries and academic libraries supporting programs in art. Bloomsbury at Home focuses upon the districts and houses where the artists and writers of the Bloomsbury group chose to live and how these places reflected their ideas on art and life. The Bloomsbury group's evocation of these places is illustrated through excerpts from letters, diaries, memoirs, and personal anecdotes. Physical details of the houses are described, as are the daily details of the lives of these artists. A helpful and succinct glossary of the biographies of all of the members of the Bloomsbury group is included in the front of this volume. Nice photographs and color reproductions of artworks and interiors are included. This is an enjoyable book, and although not very scholarly, it has interesting firsthand accounts of lifeduring this period. Recommended for general art collections.--Sandra Rothenberg, Framingham State Coll. Lib., MA Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.\
