Quite by chance I found this ceramic plate, made by Quentin Bell,
in a store in Cambridge, UK, in 2001.
A satirical view of Lydia Lopokova, who married John Maynard Keynes in 1925, much to the surprise of Venessa Bell and Virginia Woolf who, apparently, 'thought her a goose, intellectually much inferior to Maynard and themselves'. Bloomsbury gave them a hard time.
A good read about the love affair between one of the greatest dancers in Diaghilev's Russian ballet and the famous British economist, look for the book: LYDIA & MAYNARD, The letters of Lydia Lopokova and John Maynard Keynes, edited by Polly Hill and Richard Keynes. Andre Deutsch Limited, 1989
I am wondering if the families have a collection of Quentin's plates?
Quentin Bell, writer, artist, potter; b. 19.8.1910, d. 16.12.1996
