Carrington's beguiling letters take us beyond the Bloomsbury group to discuss sexual mores, how to be an artist, and what it is to be truly oneself. Known only by her surname, Dora Carrington was the star of her year at the Slade School of Fine Art, and was friends with some of the greatest minds of her day, including Virginia Woolf, Rosamund Lehmann and Maynard Keynes. For over a decade she was the companion of homosexual writer Lytton Strachey, and - stricken without him- killed herself when he died in 1932. Though she never achieved the fame her early career promised, in her determination to live life according to her own nature – especially in relation to her work and her fluid attitude to sex, gender and sexuality – she fought battles that remain familiar and urgent today. Now, through her passionate, playful and honest letters, we can encounter the maverick artist and compelling personality afresh and in her own words.

Ronald Blythe discovered a trunk full of letters in John and Christine Nash's farm after their death - letters from artists Paul and John Nash, Dora Carrington and Christine Kuhlenthal. He presents their letters in this book with startling paintings of the group. Here is a book about student days, the Western Front, friendship and courtship, and the real passion which all four shared - a love of landscape.
