In a Bloomsbury Square: The Sussex Modernists in London
Sun 26 March 2017, 14:00 – 15:30 BST
Come and explore the culture and community of the Sussex Modernists in Bloomsbury. Wandering from Two Temple Place to The British Museum, we’ll trace the lives and journeys of artists and writers including Vanessa Bell and Virginia Woolf, David Jones and Eric Gill, Paul Nash and Lee Miller. Along the way we’ll stroll through Fitzroy Square, home of the Omega Workshops, find Faber & Faber Publishers where T.S. Eliot launched literary careers, and visit The Slade, crucible of modern art, loved by some and loathed by others.
