It was the photographs and the memorabilia that really grabbed me. I've read quite a lot of Bloomsbury books, but I don't know the art very well. I think the Bloomsbury group established a whole set of values, and the ability to think away from large organisations.

I'm absolutely dazzled by the sheer range and quality of the exhibits. The organisers introduced work from the Omega venture which makes very clear the important relationship between their decorative work and their fine art, which are inseparable.

I knew something of the Bloomsbury set before I saw the show. This exhibition has added something to my knowledge, but not a great deal. The two self-portraits at the end, by Duncan Grant and Vanessa Bell, are quite intriguing.

I thought the Tate exhibition was wonderful. You get such a fantastic feeling of atmosphere, and the closeness between them. I loved the portraits, particularly of Roger Fry and Duncan Grant.
