A new exhibition at the Barbican Art Gallery explores the artistic dialogue that results from intimate relationships between artists. A section of the exhibition will concentrate on the Bloomsbury Group, with attention paid to the relationship between Vita Sackville-West and Virginia Woolf. The recently-discovered copy of Vita Sackville-West's A Note of explanation, made for the library of Queen Mary's Dolls' House, will be lent from the Royal Collection.
