Lecture 3 : The Influence of the Visual Arts on the Writing Style of Virginia Woolf

Virginia Woolf’s novels and short stories of the 1920’s are highly innovative, creative and Modernist in their design. This lecture will introduce the art critics Roger Fry and Clive Bell, their Post Impressionist Exhibitions in London in 1910 and 1912 and explain the influences of Cezanne, Picasso, Braque and Matisse and her artist sister Vanessa Bell on her life and work.
