Jan and Cora Gordon in the Library of Lady Ottoline Morrell
Lady Ottoline Morrell was a celebrated patron of the arts and society hostess who lived from 1873 to 1938. She was a contemporary of Jan and Cora Gordon, a well known pair of artists, writers and musicians. Her residence at 44 Bedford Square, Bloomsbury, London served as a salon for friends, including many authors, poets, artists and sculptors, some of them members of the "Bloomsbury Group". Members of this group were also invited to weekend retreats at the Morrells' Garsington Manor near Oxford.
Ottoline Morrell had a copy of "Poor Folk in Spain" (1922) by Jan and Cora Gordon in her library. The book bears her signature inside the front cover.
