The National Portrait Gallery’s postcard of Virginia Woolf is one of its best sellers. Many celebrities have Woolf tattoos, including Angelina Jolie and Emile Sandé, and the fashion designer Kim Jones devoted his 2021 Fendi Spring Couture collection to Woolf designs. So why are Virginia Woolf’s aesthetics and ideas still so influential today?

Emeritus Professor and author, Maggie Humm, will look at Woolf and the arts in her contemporary context - the art world of the early years of the twentieth century - to understand the range of her artistic ideas, and her interactions with the arts.

Maggie Humm is an Emeritus Professor, author/editor of fourteen books, the last four focusing on Woolf including The Edinburgh Companion to Virginia Woolf and the Arts, and her prizewinning novel, Talland House.

This talk is part of a programme of events complementing the exhibition Beyond Bloomsbury: Life, Love and Legacy, which is open at the Millennium Gallery until Sunday 13 February 2022.
