Planning ahead; my next journey abroad will go to London in July. Anyone else looking forward to this:
News Release: National Portrait Gallery announces first exhibition exploring the life of Virginia Woolf through portraits
- First exhibition to explore the life and achievements of Virginia Woolf through portraiture
- Over 100 works to be displayed including paintings, photographs and rare archival material
- Portraits of Woolf by Bloomsbury group figures Roger Fry, Duncan Grant and Vanessa Bell
For a literary scholar turned art-critic, this sounds like a perfect gift. Prepering for my part of the job, writing a review, I will definitely go back to Woolf, but also have a look at Hermione Lee marvelous biography: Virginia Woolf (1996)
Virginia Woolf: Art, Life and Vision will be on display from 10 July until 26 October.
