Contradictory Woolf

Cecil Woolf

Liverpool University Press

This chapter addresses the connection between Bloomsbury and Scotland by sharing some memories of Duncan Grant, which it describes as “the sole Scotsman in the Bloomsbury group and an artist who remained for more than two decades one of Britain's most celebrated painters, someone about whom Virginia Woolf seriously considered writing a biography.” The chapter talks of memories from the time of getting to know Grant in Leonard Woolf's London house. The most interesting moments spent with Grant were when visiting exhibitions and Grant then talked of what he loved most, painting. The chapter notes that Grant's reputation as a painter suffered from his close association with Bloomsbury.
