ART / Artefacts
Tuesday 12 April 1994
AS THE prospect of a feature film about the life of Jackson Pollock, with Robert De Niro in the title role, moves closer to reality, another art biopic is being planned for the big screen. The life of the Bloomsbury painter and groupie Dora Carrington will star Emma Thompson as the heroine. Carrington was the lover of Lytton Strachey and wife of Ralph Partridge, and killed herself in 1932 after Strachey's death ended their cosy menage a trois. Suggestions are invited for her co-stars, but the cast must surely include Stephen Fry as Partridge and Hugh Laurie as Strachey, with Kenneth Branagh as Duncan Grant, Vanessa Redgrave as Vanessa Bell, and John Gielgud as Maynard Keynes.
