The era from World War I through The Jazz Age and just beyond World War II in England and France was a time of explosive creativity in the arts, world
political upheaval, and enormous technological advances that changed everyday life. Lady Diana Manners Cooper (1892-1986), the British aristocrat, stage and film actress, designer, author, volunteer nurse, and famously glamorous social figure was at the center of it all. Art historian Lacy Davisson will discuss Cooper and her circle of English aristocrats and intellectuals including: The Duke and Duchess of Windsor, Cecil Beaton, Winston Churchill, D.H. Lawrence, Sergei Diaghilev, Evelyn Waugh, Virginia Woolf, Nancy Mitford, and D.W. Griffith.
