Meet the Prof: Jongwoo Kim, The Nicholsons in Bloomsbury

When in 1906 her family left their old home in Pilgrim’s Lane in Hampstead to move to Mecklenburgh Square, Mabel Nicholson was “not enthusiastic about the address; she had aspirations to Chelsea, which was then the ‘fashionable’ artistic quarter, and was presently to be annoyed with Orpen for labeling his portrait [of her family] ‘Bloomsbury Family.’” The Nicholsons were not, in fact, a “Bloomsbury family,” neither were they the consummate Victorian “paterfamilias” sort. Jongwoo Kim, Professor of Art History, examines this paradox of Edwardian domesticity and explores the nuanced images of a man, a woman, and their children who lived in London in the early 20th century.
