Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Published as a catalog to accompany a traveling exhibition at the Tate Gallery, London, the Huntington Library, San Marino, CA, and The Yale Center for British Art, The Art of Bloomsbury focuses on the artists of this circle, which flourished in England during the first decades of the 20th century. In three scholarly essays, the artists Vanessa Bell, Duncan Grant, Clive Bell, and critic Roger Fry are discussed in terms of their relationship to French modernist art and abstraction. Also emphasized is the vision of ritual and ceremony and the dreamlike quality of the Bloomsbury artists' work, which had its roots in the tradition of the 19th-century high Victorian imagination. A catalog of beautiful color illustrations of all art objects in the exhibition is divided up chronologically and thematically, with each section accompanied by a short introductory essay. Highly recommended for all art libraries and academic libraries supporting programs in art. Bloomsbury at Home focuses upon the districts and houses where the artists and writers of the Bloomsbury group chose to live and how these places reflected their ideas on art and life. The Bloomsbury group's evocation of these places is illustrated through excerpts from letters, diaries, memoirs, and personal anecdotes. Physical details of the houses are described, as are the daily details of the lives of these artists. A helpful and succinct glossary of the biographies of all of the members of the Bloomsbury group is included in the front of this volume. Nice photographs and color reproductions of artworks and interiors are included. This is an enjoyable book, and although not very scholarly, it has interesting firsthand accounts of life during this period. Recommended for general art collections.

Review

"A magnificent new book. . . . [A] powerful combination of words and images."--John Murray, The Bloomsbury Review



"[An] excellent catalogue. . . . Richard Shone and his contributing writers explain the ways in which the art that came out of the Bloomsbury circle. . . .introduced a dazzling new formal vocabulary to British art."--Regina Marler, Los Angeles Times Book Review



"Lucid essays illuminate the essence of Bloomsbury's three best painters. . . . The book's vibrant reproductions reveal the trio's shared devotion to rich color, strong pattern, and the sensuous joys of the physical world."--Elle



"The lavishly illustrated catalogue for The Art of Bloomsbury . . . offers detailed and knowledgeable exegeses of works on show, convincingly correcting earlier errors in dating and titling and establishing it as the definitive text in the field."--Christopher Reid, CAA. Reviews



"A catalog of beautiful color illustrations of all art objects in the exhibition is divided up chronologically and thematically, with each section accompanied by a short introductory essay. Highly recommended for all art libraries and academic libraries supporting programs in the arts."--Library Journal



"Though much has been written about various aspects of the Bloomsbury group, this book provides an important reassessment of their connection to the visual arts. . . . The copious illustrations, most in color, are splendid, and everything is thoroughly documented."--Choice

Format: Paperback
This is great collection. I was pleasantly surprised when I recently stumbled on this book. It reminds me a lot of the "Bay Area Figurative Art: 1950-1965" that came out a while back. They're similar in the amount and quality of images. I should mention that I use this book mainly for visual research and inspiration and I'm one to read this type of thing from cover to cover.. so take that for what it's worth. All in all if you're into late 20th century of Fauvist art I would HIGHLY recommend this title.
