Dora Carrington

Picking Vegetables, by Dora Carrington
Eggs on a Table, Tidmarsh Mill, by Dora Carrington

Dora Carrington was portrayed by Emma Thompson in the film Carrington, which I'd like to see again. She was a painter who used her artistic talents to create a beautiful home and surroundings. She loved a gay man, writer Lytton Strachey, and was so distraught after his death that she killed herself.

See some paintings HERE.
Check out the movie.
And a bit of a bio.
