The Bloomsbury Group in London

During and after World War I the Bloomsbury Group met regularly. Each member’s career began to develop (often belatedly), with E.M. Forster achieving eminence as a writer of fiction in 1910 with Howards End, while Leonard and Virginia Woolf founded the Hogarth Press in 1917 to publish their own work and that of their friend Vita Sackville-West, their best-selling author. Lytton Strachey published Eminent Victorians, his best-known collection of historical essays, in 1918, after spending the war as a conscientious objector. In this and his life of Queen Victoria, he overturned the reverential approach hitherto given to the Victorians. John Maynard Keynes, now a Fellow of King’s College, Cambridge, wrote on philosophical and economic matters. Roger Fry, both painter and art critic, gave exhibitions in 1910 and 1912, establishing the Bloomsbury Group’s visual aesthetic theories and practice.
