What Reviewers Are Saying
"This is a beautiful little book of photographs taken by Kim Marsland at Charleston Farmhouse in 1981. The Bloomsbury Group had left and the Charleston Trust were yet to take over; it was a house in flux, a time capsule captured in these evocative pictures...Kim Marsland's photographs recall an intimate time before Charleston's domestic decorations became an internationally recognised style."--Frames of Reference "After Duncan Grant died in 1978, Charleston Farmhouse in Sussex lost the last of its original Bloomsbury Group residents. With its fate unclear, the house and contents remained undisturbed for many years. In May 1981, Marsland (then an art student) made a visit to take notes and photographs for an essay on the Bloomsbury Group. Her unique record of Charleston shows the house just as Grant left it cluttered with years of painting, collecting and family life."
