The world’s pre-eminent feminist author's vanity exhibition inspired by her writings
Most know Virginia Woolf as a feminist author of the 20th century, but while she inspired feminism.
Entertainment 31 Jan 2018

Wings over Water 1930 Frances Hodgkins 1869-1947 Presented by Geoffrey, Peter and Richard Gorer in memory of R?e Alice Gorer 1954 http://www.tate.org.uk/art/work/N06237

Most know Virginia Woolf as a feminist author of the 20th century, but while she inspired feminism, she is also a great inspiration to many artists, whether it’s “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” a 1962 play by Edward Albee, or “The Dinner Party,” a 1979 artwork by Judy Chicago. Virginia Woolf: An Exhibition Inspired By Her Writings opens at the TATE St. Ives on February 10, which is not far from where the author spent much of her childhood. On view are paintings by over 80 artists, from Laura Knight to Vanessa Bell and Frances Hodkins, all to honor the writer who once declared: “One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.”
