Art in Isolation
Albert Simon Bussy trained at the École des Beuax-Arts in Paris under the Symbolist painter Gustave Moreau (1826-1898). It was at the pioneering Galerie Durand-Ruel that Bussy had his first exhibitions of works in pastel between 1897 and 1899. However, it was his association with the Bloomsbury Group of artists and writers that was to become an enduring influence upon his oeuvre. In particular it was Dorothy Strachey (1865-1960), novelist and translator, with whom Bussy was to share a life with as her husband. This connection firmly places Bussy at the forefront of one of the most enriching and enduring cultural circles of the twentieth century.
