The Art of Dora Carrington
London: The Herbert Press,
1994. First softcover printing.
144 pages. The fascinating catalog of a show in London, showing the neglected genius displayed by Dora Carrington, whose best work has the intensity of Stanley Spencer.
Her relationship with Lytton Strachey became an obsession, yet she was always treated as a minor acolyte by the Bloomsberries and failed to gain the respect she should have. Her suicide in 1932 following Strachey's death has meant that her legacy is only now beginning to emerge.
