Description - Charleston: the Bloomsbury Muse by Philip Mould

Accompanying an exhibition at Philip Mould & Company, this lavish catalogue tells the story of Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grant's enduring attachment to their home at Charleston Farmhouse, and showcases the work the artists produced between the two world wars. This stunning collection of artwork is beautifully presented alongside illuminating, illustrated essays, an interview and complete catalogue. Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grant's enduring attachment to their home at Charleston Farmhouse, its idyllic surroundings, and constant fl ow of visitors can be witnessed through their art. Beginning with radical modern works influenced by European trends - from painted furniture to depictions of food preparation in the kitchen, from the barns to the pond, the people to the household cat - this catalogue tells a story of over thirty years of astonishing artistic productivity. Charleston was not just the Bloomsbury Group's country retreat but a venue for their progressive social self-expression. It was also a family home. Focusing on Vanessa and Duncan's most productive years of creativity, between and including two world wars, this catalogue will explore how Charleston fed their artistic impulses and ideas to produce a glorious canon of art.
