By Quentin Bell and Virginia Nicholson
Explore the fascinating history of the Farmhouse itself and of the brilliant personalities who lived there. Discover the ideology behind this living shrine to art and design and let the passion for creativity which guided them in their endeavours inspire and influence your own work.
In this refreshed edition of the original 1997 publication, Gavin Kingcombe’s specially commissioned photographs breathe life into the colourful interiors and garden of the Sussex farmhouse, while updated text and captions by Virginia Nicholson capture the evolution of Charleston as it continues to inspire a new generation.
Taking readers through each room of the house Quentin Bell, son of Vanessa Bell, relives old memories; including having T.S. Eliot over for a dinner party and staging plays in the Studio, while Virginia Nicholson details the artistic techniques (stencilling, embroidery, painting, sculpture, ceramics and more) used to embellish and enliven the once simple farmhouse.
