Abstract:

"Dora Carrington, Mark Gertler, Paul Nash, Christopher Nevinson, and Stanley Spencer were five of the most important British artists of the twentieth century. From diverse backgrounds, they met at The Slade in London between 1908 and 1910, in what was later described as the school's "last crisis of brilliance." Between 1910 and 1918 they loved, talked, and fought; they admired, conspired, and sometimes disparaged each others' artistic creations. They created new movements; they frequented the most stylish cafés and restaurants and founded a nightclub; they slept with their models and with prostitutes; and their love affairs descended into obsession, murder, and suicide."--Publisher's description.
