Tales from The Colony Room PB
The Colony Room Club was London’s most infamous arts establishment. In the regimented and repressed atmosphere of post-war London, the Colony was heroically bohemian, largely thanks to the dominant personality of its founder, Muriel Belcher, who became a combination of muse, mentor, critic and guru to those who gathered around her, and provided a home for the confluence of talents that will be for ever associated with the artistic circle of Francis Bacon and Lucian Freud.
