Bloomsbury Group Breakfast: Bedsits in Bloomsbury


  • 29 June 2017
  • 10:00 – 11:30 am
  • By Hana Leaper (Fellow, Paul Mellon Centre)

This talk explores work produced by artists who lived, studied, painted, and networked throughout Bloomsbury’s bedsits in the early twentieth century. It will build a picture of the role their communal circumstances played in allowing them to develop their vocations through living and working independently, and how the area shaped their opportunities.

Ticket includes tea, coffee and pasteries.

This event is part of Bedford Square Festival 28 June- 1 July 2017
