Vanessa Bell by Frances Spalding( Book )

42 editions published between 1983 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 1,385 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Vanessa Bell is central to the history of the Bloomsbury Group, yet until this authorised biography was written, she largely remained a silent and inscrutable figure. Tantalising glimpses of her life appeared mainly in her sister, Virginia Woolf's, letters, diaries and biography. Frances Spalding here draws upon a mass of unpublished documents to reveal Bell's extraordinary achievements in both her art and her life. She recounts in vivid detail how Bell's move into the Bloomsbury Group and her exposure to Paris and the radical art of the Post-Impressionists ran parallel with an increasingly unorthodox personal life that spun in convoluted threads between her marriage to Clive Bell, her affair with Roger Fry, her friendship with Duncan Grant and relationship with her sister

The Bloomsbury group by Frances Spalding( Book )

14 editions published between 1997 and 2013 in English and held by 325 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Bloomsbury Group was a union of friends who transformed British culture with their innovative approach to art, design and society." "The Group began the twentieth century with a desire to rebel and challenge the religious, artistic, social and social taboos of Victorian England. Together they achieved a revolution in British style that resonates with contemporary painters, writers, actors, designers, fashion editors and publishers." "This book explores the impact of Bloomsbury personalities on each other, as well as how they shaped the development of British Modernism. Author Frances Spalking demonstrates how this network of artists, lovers and patrons recorded one another obsessively in both words and images. She presents nineteen fascinating biographies, all of which are illustrated with paintings and intimate photographs created by members of the Group. Included in her revealing account are: Virginia and Leonard Woold, Vanessa and Clive Bell, Duncan Grant, Lady Ottoline Morrell, Roger Fry, J.M. Keynes, Lytton Strachey and Dora Carrington."--Jacket

John Piper in the 1930s : abstraction on the beach by David Fraser Jenkins( Book )

10 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 271 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"John Piper was one of the leading Modernist artists of the twentieth century whose work was not only at the forefront of artistic developments but also appealed directly to a wide public. Marking the centenary of Piper's birth in 1903, this book dramatically uncovers the various shifts in his early career while working largely on the south coast of England, from a lyrical, painterly style and lively use of collage, inspired by Picasso and Braque, into pure abstraction, in keeping with International Modernism. The second half of the 1930s saw the order and harmony of Piper's work unsettled by the onset of war, and with it a return to representation in an attempt to find a contemporary idiom with which to express his romantic love of the past. The tension between abstraction and realism in Piper's work of the period is engagingly told and stunningly illustrated in this, the first in-depth exploration of the artist's formative years."--Jacket
