About the Author:

Richard Shone is an Associate Editor of The Burlington Magazine, and a well-known writer on nineteenth- and twentieth-century art. His books include Bloomsbury Portraits, Alfred Sisley, and Walter Sickert. He has also written extensively on contemporary British artists such as Fiona Rae, Rachel Whiteread, and Damien Hirst.

Review:

"A magnificent new book. . . . [A] powerful combination of words and images."--John Murray, The Bloomsbury Review

"[An] excellent catalogue. . . . Richard Shone and his contributing writers explain the ways in which the art that came out of the Bloomsbury circle. . . .introduced a dazzling new formal vocabulary to British art."--Regina Marler, Los Angeles Times Book Review

"Lucid essays illuminate the essence of Bloomsbury's three best painters. . . . The book's vibrant reproductions reveal the trio's shared devotion to rich color, strong pattern, and the sensuous joys of the physical world."--Elle

"The lavishly illustrated catalogue for The Art of Bloomsbury . . . offers detailed and knowledgeable exegeses of works on show, convincingly correcting earlier errors in dating and titling and establishing it as the definitive text in the field."--Christopher Reid, CAA. Reviews

"A catalog of beautiful color illustrations of all art objects in the exhibition is divided up chronologically and thematically, with each section accompanied by a short introductory essay. Highly recommended for all art libraries and academic libraries supporting programs in the arts."--Library Journal

"Though much has been written about various aspects of the Bloomsbury group, this book provides an important reassessment of their connection to the visual arts. . . . The copious illustrations, most in color, are splendid, and everything is thoroughly documented."--Choice
