"This book, originally published in 1976, was the first to look at the contribution of the painters of the [Bloomsbury] group, Vanessa Bell (1879-1961) and Duncan Grant (1885-1978), not only within the context of Bloomsbury but also from the wider persepctive of Modern British art. In a vivid narrative, Richard Shone weaves together the artists' private lives and professional careers during the first decades of this century. He illuminates their friendships within Bloomsbury, ... and in the world of painting.... [This book] has long been out of print. This new edition has been revised throughout, and incorporates new information and over 80 colour illustrations. Much of the vividness of the book and its authentic evocation of the Bloomsbury artists' lives and times comes from Shone's first-hand experience of Charleston (where some of the book was written) and his friendship with Duncan Grant in the last years of the painter's life."
