VIRGINIA WOOLF on life, art and buying suspenders: an illustrated presentation by Karin Fernald
In her famous novel TO THE LIGHTHOUSE, Virginia Woolf investigates the fears of a young woman artist faced with a blank canvas. “How to begin? At what point to make the first mark?”
Entertainingly frank confessions in Woolf’s diaries reveal the embarrassments of a respectable London lady in the 1920’s. “I hate buying clothes. In particular I hate buying suspenders....” And she has the courage to confront the vital question “Am I a Snob?” (Her answer is YES! ) With paintings by Vanessa Bell, Walter Sickert, and other members of the Camden Group of Artists.
