CHARLESTON FARMHOUSE: A PHOTOGRAPHIC RECOLLECTION OF THE HOME OF THE BLOOMSBURY GROUP IN SUSSEX. Kim Marsland. Unicorn, Unicorn Publishing Group, London, 2016. Distributed in the U.S.A. by University of Chicago Press. 64 pp. with 26 ills. (11 col.). 22 x 17 cm. ISBN 9781910787236 In English.
Publisher's description: Built in the seventeenth century, the Sussex farmhouse Charleston was home from 1916 until 1978 to two of the most influential artists of Bloomsbury group -- Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grant. And during their residence, Bell and Grant opened the doors of Charleston as a country retreat for many members of the group, including Bell's sister Virginia Woolf and her husband Leonard, the economist John Maynard Keynes, the art critics Roger Fry and Clive Bell, and the biographer Lytton Strachey. Charleston is a house unlike any other, with many a story to tell. After Duncan Grant died in 1978, Charleston's fate remained unclear for several years with its contents remaining undisturbed and unaltered from their Bloomsbury days. During this time, while funds were being sought for the house's restoration, Kim Marsland made two visits to take notes and photographs. Her unique record of Charleston, gathered here in this marvelous book, shows the house just as Grant left it -- cluttered with years of painting, collecting, and literary life. The previously unpublished photographs gathered here showcase the unique atmosphere of a house full of memories and artistic importance.
