Short biography
Dora Carrington was an accomplished painter and also worked in applied and decorative arts. She decorated everything from inn signs to tiles and pottery to furniture. Her work was underappreciated for many years, but her reputation has risen since 1970, when David Garnett published a selection of letters and extracts from her diary. In 1995, she was the subject of a major retrospective exhibition at the Barbican Art Gallery in London. She lived for years with biographer/writer Lytton Strachey. Her life was fictionalized in the 1995 film Carrington, starring Emma Thompson in the title role.
