The Art of Bloomsbury book. The word Bloomsbury most often summons the novels of Virginia. Gorgeous color art work from Vanessa Bell, Roger Fry and Duncan Grant. I have long been fascinated with the Bloomsbury set which were a group of English artists, writers and intellectuals in the first half of the 20th century. This added to my growing collection of this interesting group. I especially admire of the artists, Vanessa Bell, who was the oldest sister of Virginia Woolf. Her work is inspiring and I was lucky to get this beautiful catalogue of "The Art of Bloomsbury.

The word Bloomsbury most often summons the novels of Virginia Woolf and E. M. Forster or images of artists and intellectuals debating the hot parlor topics of 1910s and 1920s London: literary aesthetics, agnosticism, defining truth and goodness, and the ideas of Bertrand Russell, A. N. Whitehead, and G. E. Moore. But the Bloomsbury Group also played a prominent role in the development of modernist painting in Britain. The work of artists Vanessa Bell, Duncan Grant, Roger Fry, and their colleagues was often audacious and experimental, and proved to be one of the key influences on twentieth-century British art and design.

This catalogue, published to accompany a major international exhibition of the Bloomsbury painters originating at the Tate Gallery in London and traveling to the Yale Center for British Art and the Huntington Art Gallery, provides a new look at the visual side of a movement that is more generally known for its literary production. It traces the artists' development over several decades and assesses their contribution to modernism. Catalogue entries on two hundred works, all illustrated in color, bring out the chief characteristics of Bloomsbury painting--domestic, contemplative, sensuous, and essentially pacific. These are seen in landscapes, portraits, and still lifes set in London, Sussex, and the South of France, as well as in the abstract painting and applied art that placed these artists at the forefront of the avant-garde before the First World War. Portraits of family and friends--from Virginia Woolf and Maynard Keynes to Aldous Huxley and Edith Sitwell--highlight the cultural and social setting of the group. Essays by leading scholars provide further insights into the works and the changing critical reaction to them, exploring friendships and relationships both within and outside of Bloomsbury, as well as the movement's wider social, economic, and political background.

With beautiful illustrations and a highly accessible text, this catalogue represents a unique look at this fascinating artistic enclave. In addition to the editor, the contributors are James Beechey and Richard Morphet.

The book is not cheap and I couldn't view the content pages. I was quite hesitant at first; but the reviews boosted my confidence. I expected pictures of paintings with some caption describing the work. But it is far more awesome. It opens with 3 essays - total 40 pages including artwork and old photos of the painters (see attached first 3 photos) followed by close to 200 full colour paintings with surprisingly detailed story/description on each (last 2 photos). Worth every cent.
The book is beautiful. The text wonderful. I am so glad I bought this book. I am a Bloomsbury fan. I am thinking of briny it in hard back for a friend.
wonderful thank you
Great book...love it...thanks!
This is great collection. I was pleasantly surprised when I recently stumbled on this book. It reminds me a lot of the "Bay Area Figurative Art: 1950-1965" that came out a while back. They're similar in the amount and quality of images. I should mention that I use this book mainly for visual research and inspiration and I'm one to read this type of thing from cover to cover.. so take that for what it's worth. All in all if you're into late 20th century of Fauvist art I would HIGHLY recommend this title.
