Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
A very enlightening view from a historical perspective regarding British artists/writers/painters/architects and others during the early 20th Century (1930's-1940's)--a period described as a modern English renaissance prior to artists such as Picasso and other "modern" artists. I have a particular interest in the Bloomsbury artists, but this book covers more than just Bloomsbury--a variety of people in the art world, such as John Piper, Virginia Woolf, Evelyn Waugh, E. M. Forster, the Sitwells, Graham Sutherland, Paul Nash, Cecil Beaton, and many more. Beautifully bound and contains 79 illustrations, most in full color.

This is an excellent book because it is well-researched and well-written. The subject is unusual because it deals with both writers (like Virginia Woolf and Elizabeth Bowen) and artists (like John Piper and Paul Nash) in the UK in the 1930s and 1940s. Instead of saying they were either romantics or moderns the author makes the more interesting argument that they included elements of both romanticism and modernity in their work.
