Bloomsbury Below Stairs - Grace Higgens at Charleston, 1920-1970

"Bloomsbury Below Stairs draws on the recently acquired archive of Grace Higgens (1903-1983), who worked for over 50 years at Charleston Farmhouse, Sussex, a country haven for the artists Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grant and their circle of unconventional and talented friends, collectively known as the Bloomsbury group. The display paints a vivid picture of the lives of the Bloomsbury group as seen from 'below stairs' through the diaries, photographs and letters of Grace Higgens, housekeeper to Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grant for more than five decades" - 30 January to 20 April 2008 - The Folio Society Gallery at the British Library
