Last Bloombury

The last survivor of the Bloomsbury Group, Frances Partridge, has passed away.

Born Frances Marshall, she became the lover of group member Ralph Partridge, who was married at the time to painter Dora Carrington, who in turn was in love with biographer Lytton Strachey. The gay Strachey was in love with the “hopelessly heterosexual” Ralph Partridge. All lived together for a time in a house in the country.

And you thought your love life was complicated.
