Roger Fry: A Biography | Virginia Woolf
Roger Fry: A Biography | By Virginia Woolf
Virginia Woolf was a close friend of Roger Fry for many years – after his death she wrote this loving account of his passion for art, his own painting, and his challenging critical theories. Born in 1866, he was primarily responsible for bringing the post-Impressionist movement to Britain, organising the first exhibitions and establishing the Omega workshops: he was also curator of the Metropolitan Museum of Modern Art in New York. Virginia Woolf describes his career and also brings to life Fry’s private self, his pain, his resilience and his generosity of spirit, which made him such a powerful influence on this own and future generations.
