Garden statutes in Charleston farmhouse

No money for Rodin, no problem, just make them yourselves. That's the way of Charleston farmhouse where a group of Bohemians lived, Vanessa Bell, her gay lover, Duncan Grant and her children. Later her estranged husband, Clive Bell moved in. They went apart even though they never divorced. John Maynard Keynes took up residence here for a while and their friends who came over to their flat in the Bloomsbury area of London also visited. These group of artists and intellectuals formed a group in the London flat in the Bloomsbury area and they were given the name 'the Bloomsbury group.' These are the work of one of Vanessa's sons, Quentin Bell. He wrote and dabbled in pottery.
