The most constructive and creative influence on English taste between the two wars, ‘The Bloomsbury Group’ was a union of friends who transformed British culture with their approach to art, design and society.

In this book, Frances Spalding explores the impact of Bloomsbury personalities on each other, as well as their legacy to the twenty-first century.

The Bloomsbury Group began the twentieth century with a desire to rebel and challenge what they felt were the religious, artistic, social and sexual taboos of Victorian England. Together they created a revolution in British style that resonates with contemporary painters, writers, actors, designers, fashion editors and publishers.

Frances Spalding demonstrates how this network of artists, lovers and patrons recorded one another obsessively in both words and images. She presents twenty fascinating biographies, all of which are illustrated with paintings and intimate photographs created by members of the Group. Highlighted in her revealing account are: Virginia and Leonard Woolf, Vanessa and Clive Bell, Duncan Grant, Lady Ottoline Morrell, Roger Fry, J.M. Keynes, Lytton Strachey and Dora Carrington.
