#IntoThe1920s #ArtReading

Just a quick ‘listing’ of some of the fabulous books out & around at the moment that have relevance to art, artists & inter-war British culture…

Books on Nina Hamnett specifically are quite hard to come by (Inter-Library loans) but there are two autobiographies “Laughing Torso” and “Is She A Lady?” as well as Denise Hooker’s “Nina Hamnett: Queen of Bohemia”.

On Nancy Cunard, there are two biographies: Anne Chisholm’s “Nancy Cunard” and Lois Gordon’s “Nancy Cunard: Heiress, Muse, Political Idealist”. “Selected Poems” is available and, coming up, a US publication: “Nancy Cunard: Perfect Stranger” by Jane Marcus – and what a cover photo by Curtis Moffat, circa 1925 (see: http://www.vam.ac.uk)


Please feel free to suggest further titles I might include. Happy #ArtReading!
