Why this Blog?

A place where I can lament the changing times; for eccentric comments on current affairs and for unfashionable views, expressed I hope, in cogent style; also occasional cris de coeur largely concerned, I regret to say, with myself.

Amazing that for so long her work was rather neglected.  Not only have I Gerzina's biography on order, but I am now awaiting a copy of Jane Hill's The Art of Dora Carrington. Oh dear...

And here's a little snap of Carrington with Iris Tree:


Here's Miss Tree photographed by Man Ray, a print displayed at the National Portrait Gallery:



Miss Tree is a subject well worth addressing in a future post here; perhaps I will.

Until the next time

Gerzina's biography of Carrington is wonderful - I'm sure you'll enjoy it!
Thank you for stopping by on Miss Darcy's Library and for commenting. I answered your comment earlier this evening!
