From the publisher:
"This major new book on the work and ideals of the artists and designers of the Bloomsbury Group brings together, for the first time in one volume, the paintings, designs and writings of the personalities associated with 'Post-impressionism' in English art and design. Roger Fry and Clive Bell, Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grant formed the nucleus of a group of painters and critics who, inspired by French art, especially the work of Cézanne, Matisse and Picasso, set out to revitalise the avant-garde in England in the years leading up to the First World War. Their work then and subsequently provides an interesting insight into English attitudes to modernism and it was, of course, complemented by the writers of the Bloomsbury Group, most notably Virginia Woolf and Lytton Strachey.
Edited and compiled by Gillian Naylor, a leading British expert on nineteenth- and twentieth-century art and design, Bloomsbury: The Artists, Authors and Designers By Themselves traces the origins of the Group and its preoccupations."
