Art in Isolation
Join Philip for an exploration of the infamous Garsington Manor; where artist Gilbert Spencer met society hostess and patron of the arts Lady Ottoline Morrell.
Visitors to the old Oxfordshire manor house at Garsington were so welcomed by the owners, Ottoline and Philip Morrell, that some would stay for months on end. Artists, writers, poets and creatives such as W. J. Turner, T. S. Eliot, Aldous Huxley, Virginia Wolf, Vanessa Bell, Lytton Strachey, Duncan Grant, David Garnett, Dora Carrington, Dorothy Brett and Siegfried Sassoon frequented Ottoline’s Oxfordshire home. In her memoir, Morrell described her home as ‘a theatre, where week after week a travelling company would arrive and play their parts ... How much they felt and saw of the beauty of the setting I never knew.’
