A Bloomsbury Canvas brings together a selection of short essays from the leading commentators on the Bloomsbury Group – the association of artists and writers centred around the sisters Virginia Woolf and Vanessa Bell which had an important influence on cultural and intellectual life in Britain during the early decades of the twentieth century. Essayists include Hermione Lee, noted biographer of Virginia Woolf; art historians Richard Shone and Frances Spalding; Nigel Nicolson, author of Portrait of a Marriage (a groundbreaking study of his parents Vita Sackville-West and Harold Nicolson); and the last survivors of those closely connected to the Bloomsbury Group: Frances Partridge, Quentin Bell and Angelica Garnett. The essays are edited and introduced by Tony Bradshaw, author of The Bloomsbury Artists: Prints and Book Design (Scolar Press 1999) and owner of The Bloomsbury Workshop, the internationally renowned art gallery and bookshop specializing in the work of the Group. Representing what is best and typical of Bloomsbury art, the book is excitingly illustrated with previously unpublished works.
