Selected Letters of Vanessa Bell. Edited by Regina Marler.
by [Bloomsbury Group] Bell, Vanessa.

Publisher Information:
Pantheon,, New York:: 1993..

A Fine tight unread copy in a Fine bright dust jacket. The daughter of eminent Victorian writer Sir Leslie Stephen and older sister of Virginia Woolf, Vanessa Bell was a well-known avant-garde painter and decorator, and a central figure in the Bloomsbury group. The collection, including many of Vanessa daily letters to her children, sister, and her lovers, takes readers from 1885 to 1961 - through more than seventy years and two world wars. Together they document Vanessa's fascinating and often romantic relationship with her sister; her domestic and aesthetic life at various houses including Gordon Square, Asheham, Cassis and Charleston; and her passionate involvements with Rodger Fry and Duncan Grant - who himself would have had an affair with the writer David Bunny Garnett, future husband of Duncan and Vanessa daughter, Angelica. Contains 592 pages of correspondence and an index. Illustrated with photographs.
