Wyndham Lewis portrayed her as a tiny sex therapist, D. H. Lawrence as a frivolous artist's model and, elsewhere, as a gang-raped aesthete, and Aldous Huxley as jargon-speaking ultra-modern girl. Because of her Bohemian lifestyle, connection with the Bloomsbury group, her bobbed hair and outspoken views, painter Dora Carrington seems to symbolize the 'new' woman of the early 20th century. But the reality is more complex than that. While sexuality, infidelity and modernity were undeniably aspects of her personality, they were equally balanced by a loathing of her own femaleness, a devotion for 17 years with one man - albeit the homosexual Lytton Strachey, and respect for many aspects of traditional English life. Here is a vivid and compelling portrait of a remarkable woman -described by Lady Ottoline Morrell as 'a strange wild beast'.
