Virginia Woolf, A Room of One’s Own

Although early American artist Charles Bird King (1785-1862) was a skilled still-life painter, he is primarily remembered today for his portraits of Native-Americans.  A Room of One’s Own by British writer Virginia Woolf (1882-1941) was her declaration for a woman’s right to pursue creative freedom.
