Book Club of California: Julian Bell: Growing up in Bloomsbury
Julian Bell - the son of Quentin and Anne Olivier Bell, the grandson of Vanessa and Clive Bell, Julian is more than qualified to speak on Bloomsbury. Born in 1952, he read English literature at Oxford University but has since made his living as a painter based in southern England. Over the past twenty years he has written many features about art for the Times Literary Supplement, the London Review of Books, and The New York Review of Books. His exploration of art theory, What is Painting?, appeared in 1999, and his introduction to art history, Mirror of the World, in 2007.
