The Art of Bloomsbury Roger Fry, Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grant

Edited by Richard Shone with essays by James Beechey and Richard Morphet

Published in HARDBACK by Tate Gallery Publishing 1999

AS NEW condition. This catalogue provides a new look at the visual side of the Bloomsbury Group, which played a prominent role in the development of modernist painting in Britain. The work of Vanessa Bell, Duncan Grant, Roger Fry and their colleagues was often audacious and experimental.

Entries on 200 hundred works bring out the chief characteristics of their painting - domestic, contemplative, sensuous, and essentially pacific. Portraits of family and friends - from Virginia Woolf and Maynard Keynes to Aldous Huxley and Edith Sitwell - highlight the cultural and social entity of the group. Essays by scholars provide further intriguing insights into the work of the artists, and the changing critical reaction to it.

"So glad I found you today and managed to also find a perfect gift for my lovely uncle on his 92nd birthday. I want to thank you for, well, just exisisting and doing what you obviously love doing. You provided what the town and city shops can't and I'm just so happy you do and will of course return soonest.- Paul in Scotland

"I just wanted to let you know that my son has received his gift pack in York and he was really touched! He loved the fact that thought had gone into it from both me and you so thank you very much." - Michelle in Shepshed.

"Books received by my mother thank you so much. She is so happy and it has calmed her down, she has been so hyper and anxious the last few days, but your magic has worked wonders. Thank you thank you thank you!" Carolyn in London

Good afternoon, this may be a little random, but I have had an experience due to your shop!
I popped in a couple of weeks ago and picked-up a book for my grandma related to WW1 and Castle Donington. Through her reading of the book, we discovered that it had some relatives in it. We found out more information about our family history and how they passed in the war. I used this information to undertake some online/Facebook research and I am now in contact with some Austrian relatives.
A 10-minute trip to you has led to a lot!

"This fabulous bookshop is quirky, welcoming - an absolute treasure trove. The time's I've challenged the team to find a certain book for me and never have they let me down. Now when I go in they make suggestions of books they think I may enjoy and even keep books to one side for me if I'm not about for a day or two.

They also provide the most wonderful monthly subscription to my Mum - a cosy crime novel each month. As I live a good distance from her it's lovely to hear her excitement when she receives her book and to talk about what has been sent on the 'phone. A great gift thoughtfully delivered by an knowledgeable, wonderful team. Thank you and keep up the wonderful work! You are, without a doubt, my favourite shop in all the world! x" Rachel in Wales
