Product Description
Dora Carrington Notecard Folio
Trained at the Slade School of Art (a department of University College London), Dora Carrington may be thought of principally as a painter of portraits and landscapes, but in fact she produced many book designs, much decorative art. While she remained little affected by the innovations of the French avant-garde, she did join the Omega Workshop, founded by Roger Fry, the high priest of formalism and a great champion of Cézanne. The goal of Omega was to break down the insidious divide between what are called the fine arts and the decorative arts, and many furniture designs, fabric designs, mosaics, and so forth were produced by the cooperative studio between 1913 and 1919.

Carrington produced a striking series of portraits of Lytton Strachey, E. M. Forster, and others in her circle. She never exhibited her work and did not even sign it. The two landscapes reproduced for these cards exhibit a fondness for structural simplicity, symmetry, soft curves, and sensual rhythms.

Contains five each of the following notecards:
Farm at Watendlath, 1921
Spanish Landscape with Mountains, c. 1924
