Description - Bohemia in London by Peter Brooker

This study discovers the bourgeois in the modernist and the dissenting style of Bohemia in the new artistic movements of the 1910s. Brooker sees the bohemian as the example of the modern artist, at odds with but defined by the codes of bourgeois society. "Bohemia in London" reconstructs the usual history, situating the canonic names of modernism in the world of groups and coteries which shaped the allied experiments in art and life. Thus it renews once more the complexities and radicalism of the modernist challenge.
