Beschreibung:
The Bloomsbury group was the most innovative and influential group of pioneering modernist artists, writers and designers in early 20th century Britain. Tragically, all their London homes were destroyed in the Blitz, but happily, both Virginia and Leonard Woolf's home in Rodmell and Vanessa Bell's home at Charleston near Firle are open to the public. Together with the murals and other decorations by Duncan Grant, Vanessa Bell and her son Quentin in nearby Berwick church, they provide a unique picture of the aims and ideals associated, with the Bloomsbury group in the early decades of the last century, as reflected in the homes they lived and, worked in for more than 50 years.
The Bloomsbury group was the most innovative and influential group of pioneering modernist artists, writers and designers in early 20th century Britain. This work talks about how their murals and other decorations provide a unique picture of the aims and ideals associated with the group in the early decades of the last century.
The domestic milieu of the Bloomsbury Group is revealed in the decorations and gardens of the Woolf's home in Rodmell, and Vanessa Bell's at Charleston.
