From Victorian conventions to a new modernity. Vanessa Bell, (from the Bloomsbury Group) painted during this transition.
Iceland Poppies now hangs in the Garden Room at Charleston, its original home, alongside Sickert and Matisse.
So elegantly refined.

mydaguerreotypeboyfriend:

The recent discovery of an unpublished D.H. Lawrence letter proves that he’s got your back, ladies. Writing in response to a misogynistic 1924 article titled “The Ugliness of Women,” Lawrence lay down the law: 


The hideousness {the author] sees is the reflection of himself, and of the automatic meat-lust with which he approaches another individual…Even the most “beautiful” woman is still a human creature. If {the author] approached her as such, as a being instead of as a piece of lurid meat, he would have no horrors afterwards.

The Old Parsonage, Oxford

Everyone has stayed at the Old Parsonage, from Oscar Wilde to Inspector Morse. It’s the kind of low-ceilinged, log fire-burning, mullion-windowed Cotswold inn that Americans gobble up with a spoon; in a Richard Curtis film, this is where her parents would stay. The dining room, dense with modern masters, still has a touch of the Chelsea Arts Club about it, but the recent refurb has made mega changes. The old red walls have been replaced with a chic dark grey, and the new Sally Conran designed-bedrooms have snazzy tech touches - whispering air con, underfloor heating, motion-sensitive lighting. But it’s the glassed-in library that’s the real triumph. A handpicked collection of books that you’ll really want to read line the shelves and the walls are hung with sultry photos of Oxford undergrads. And the best bit? A retro black telephone with which to summon drinks from the bar below. Bet that was Oscar’s favourite thing, too.
