And the truth is.., I’m a day late to #woolfwednesday but better late than never, as they say. Sending a special shout out to my dear friend, @thehalcyondaysofsummer for her beautiful Woolf post yesterday which I only saw this morning.

Do you have a favourite book by Virginia Woolf? I have several; Orlando, Mrs. Dalloway, The Waves and A Room of One’s Own. If you have yet to read her work, I would highly recommend it! ☺️

Dora Carrington was a brilliant artist, known (in part) for her association with the Bloomsbury Group. She designed beautiful jackets for books published by Virginia and Leonard Woolf at the Hogarth Press. She also had a fantastic sense of humour and a poetic outlook on life, which you can glean quickly from these wonderful letters we published this month. Don’t you LOVE this vintage-Hogarth style cover?

These eight works of figures by Bloomsbury Group artists Duncan Grant and Vanessa Bell were studies for a set of murals. The figures represent the muses of arts and science and were preparatory works for a set of murals that Grant and Bell created in 1920 for the college rooms of JM Keynes at King's College, Cambridge.

My grandmother on a plate... and Duncan Grant. #famouswomenplates #vanessabell #duncangrant #bloomsburygroup #bloomsburyart

Duncan James Corrowr Grant (1885 – 1978) is best known for his painting style, which developed in the wake of French post-impressionist exhibitions mounted in London in 1910. He often worked with, and was influenced by, another member of the group, art critic and artist Roger Fry. As well as painting landscapes and portraits, Fry designed textiles and ceramics. #duncangrant #bloomsburygroup #charlestonfarmhouse #britishart

This weekend, Alice reminisces on her great experience at the Tate's exhibition "Queer British Art". She questions whether artists in the twentieth century would still be making the same statements today, and about the huge impact this exhibition has had on the general public.

Not #virginiawoolf ‘s bathroom. “In a letter at the end of 1911, Virginia had boldly informed Leonard about the relative merits of having earth-closets at Asheham, cleaned out by Mrs Hoper, ‘a very old woman’... When Vanessa stayed at Asheham...the ancient water pump broke down and there was no water, though it was raining hard for days. Mrs Funnell, the local shepherd’s wife and new caretaker, refused to empty their pails (which had to be poured, presumably, into a cesspit, a rotten job at the best of times). Neither her husband nor her boys were prepared to go on pumping)...” Now, I’m as starry-eyed as anygurl over the #bloomsbury bunch, but Alison Light’s elegantly written study makes clear how little-to-none of VW’s dazzling oeuvre would ever have seen the light of day without her servants. Tho’ both Virginia and Vanessa dreamed of doing without Nelly and Sophie and cetera, they never quite...did.

The Library at Charleston in East Sussex. Charleston was the country home of Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grant and is an example of Bloomsbury Group decorative style within a domestic context, representing the fruition of over sixty years of artistic creativity. #charlestonhouse #bloomsburygroup #vanessabell #duncangrant #studio #interior #interieur #interiores #interiors #interiordecor #interiordesign #decoração #decoration #decoración #painter #artist #artists #design #designer #bohemian #bohemianstyle #decorative #style

"Olivia" è un piccolo, sconosciuto ai più, ma preziosissimo romanzo. Racconta la storia di una ragazzina e del suo amore crescente per la sua istitutrice. Uscì nel 1949 come "Olivia" di Olivia. Solo negli anni '80 ne fu attribuita la maternità a Dorothy Bussy Strachey, sorella del più famoso Lytton Strachey.

Ve ne parleremo in febbraio sul blog. Per ora assaggiate un estratto che a noi ha fatto sognare..è una riflessione fondamentale in questo momento per noi in cui stiamo scrivendo tanto e stiamo proprio cercando di metterla a nudo quest'anima, finalmente.

E voi cosa ne pensate?
E' possibile o no scrivere senza mettere a nudo la propria anima?

Fatecelo sapere, siamo curiose di sapere cosa ne pensate

Buon inizio di weekend travellers

Charleston, East Sussex, UK.
A seventeenth-century farmhouse that became a retreat for the Bloomsbury Group, including Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grant.
*
Charleston was the home of Vanessa Bell (1879-1961) and Duncan Grant (1885-1978) from 1916, and it became a country meeting point for the so-called 'Bloomsbury Group', including Bell's sister Virginia Woolf (1882-1941) and her husband Leonard Woolf (1880-1969), the economist John Maynard Keynes (1883-1946), the art critics Roger Fry (1866-1934) and Clive Bell (1881-1964) and the biographer Lytton Strachey (1880-1932). *
Inspired by Italian fresco painting and Post-Impressionism, Bell and Grant set about decorating the interiors of the farmhouse, and redesigning the garden to feature mosaics and box hedges.
*
The house opened to the public in 1986 after a major restoration, and today visitors can enjoy the historic interiors decorated by Bell and Grant, as well as the artists' studio looking onto the garden. The collection also includes painted furniture, ceramics, paintings and textiles, and works by artists admired by the Bloomsbury group, including Renoir and Picasso.

The rooms of Oxbridge dons are, as best I can tell, among the most understudied—and least photographed—confections in the annals of interior “design” history •
.
While hunting, last week, for a certain 1968 photograph of #emforster in his rooms at #kingscollegecambridge, it occurred to me that John Maynard Keynes, the economist, was a Fellow of that same college, as well as a fellow Bloomsburian •
.
If Forster’s rooms had about them a reassuring Edwardian sedation, Keynes’s own—I was absolutely gobsmacked to learn—once were almost inconceivably, er, suggestive •
.
But, for decades, that fact was deliberately concealed from the world • Then, in 2015, workers removing old #wallpaper made a remarkable discovery • And the beautiful truth was laid bare •
.
Beneath said wallpaper—covering a length of wooden panels—lay an “exuberant painted scene” contrived by the economist’s former lover, #bloomsburygroup #painter #duncangrant
.
Between 1910 and 1911, at Keynes’s behest, Grant had adorned the walls of an otherwise perfunctory room—P4, in Webb’s Court—with nude dancers and Mediterranean grape-pickers •
.
In 1920, Grant returned to King’s and, together with #vanessabell, gave Keynes a #mural depicting the Muses of Arts and Sciences •
.
I much prefer the nude dancers and grape-pickers • 🕺 🍇 💃🏻

Love this painting of a farm near Keswick by Dora Carrington, who was a fringe member of the Bloomsbury group. The painting can be seen in the Tate Britain gallery and to my mind it really stands out. #doracarrington #tatebritain #bloomsburygroup #keswick #lakedistrict

Ooh look what arrived in the post! My range for the British Library is all done and dusted and available in their shop! I’ll post some more pics soon of the whole range... #dreamproject #britishlibrary #literarylondon #virginiawoolf #bloomsbury #bloomsburygroup @britishlibrary

Beautiful cups and other ceramics for sale on the website @bloomsburyceramics if you fancy a bit of Bloomsbury at your table (not an ad, just enthusiastic 👌)

‘The birds’ by Duncan Grant in #wishlist #wellsgallery #andelliart #duncangrant #bloomsburygroup

Duncan Grant was an innovative Post-Impressionist painter and designer. A flamboyant member of the Bloomsbury Group, he, along with Virginia Woolf and E.M. Forster, were Dial magazine contributors. Son of a British Army major, Grant spent his childhood in India and Burma, and was strongly influenced by the Eastern aesthetic as seen in "Woman with Ewer" (1918) - Scofield Thayer Collection. #thedialmagazine #scofieldthayer #duncangrant #postimpressionism #bloomsburygroup #artoftheday #arthistory #watercolor #virginiawoolf #emforster #vanessabell #metmuseum #metdrawingsandprints #ewer #britishindia #britishburma

Later that evening, Leonard found the second suicide note Virginia had left for him in her writing lodge. He examined it closely and believed it was what he had seen Virginia writing that morning when he visited her in her lodge. The note read:
....
“Dearest,
I want to tell you that you have given me complete happiness. No one could have done more than you have done. Please believe that.
But I know that I shall never get over this: and I am wasting your life. It is this madness. Nothing anyone says can persuade me. You can work, and you will be much better without me. You see I can’t write this even, which shows I am right. All I want to say is that until this disease came on we were perfectly happy. It was all due to you. No one could have been so good as you have been, from the very first day till now. Everyone knows that.
V.”
...
Virginia’s body was found three weeks later after it washed up near the bridge in Southease.
