Description

Here is an absorbing biography of the English artist Dora Carrington, who called herself simply "Carrington". A talented painter, living a bohemian life, Carrington was torn by conflicts as an artist and a woman. A mystery to those who knew her, she achieved notoriety by killing herself after the death of noted writer Lytton Strachey, the man she was hopelessly in love with. Her work is now represented in major collections worldwide.
