Description

As a central figure in the Bloomsbury circle and a founding member of the Omega workshops, Duncan Grant's artistic achievements are discussed based on extensive interviews with the artist. The author also follows the last thirty years of his life when he continued to work steadily although his fame was in decline. The study includes many photographs which have never been previously reproduced. The personal history of the artist is covered by the author, who knew Grant and was acquainted with Paul Roche who lived with Grant for many years and was one of his heirs. As well as an examination of the development of modern British painting, this biography includes an insight into homosexuality between the wars and many personal stories.show more
