Blogging Woolf is back from a holiday hiatus made longer by a bout with On Being Ill — the virus, not the Virginia Woolf essay published in 1930 by the Hogarth Press. But now that we are back, we recommend a couple of essays for your edification in this new year.
The first, “1913–What year…” by Kathleen Dixon Donnelly on the SuchFriends blog, takes an in-depth look at the New York Armory Show in February 1913, connecting it to Bloomsbury Group painters Vanessa Bell, Duncan Grant, Roger Fry, etc. who closed London’s Second Post-Impressionist Exhibit early so many of the paintings could be sent on to New York.
Donnelly promises to post updates all year on what was happening to writers in 1913. You can also check out the Such Friends page on Facebook.
