Into the 1920s:
Vanessa Bell, Nina Hamnett & Nancy Cunard
The Beecroft Gallery
Saturday 25th January
Our theme today is the transition from war to peace in British art.
The period 1910-1914 had been vital and experimental when it came to British art history: The Camden Town Group, Bloomsbury and the Vorticists all vied for attention. War, unsurprisingly, dulled much of that enthusiasm. Today, by following the lives of two artists – Vanessa Bell and Nina Hamnett – and that of the poet Nancy Cunard, we will explore the cultural contexts of the early 1920s.
