Bloomsbury at Home by Todd, Pamela

Format: Hardcover with Dust Jacket

Published by Abrams, 2000

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"
