Dora de Houghton Carrington (1893 – 1932), known generally as Carrington. English painter and decorative artist, remembered in part for her association with members of the Bloomsbury Group, especially the writer Lytton Strachey.

- "...when as a bored sufferer in the Antique Class my attention had been suddenly fixed by the sight of this amusing person with such very blue eyes and such incredibly thick pigtails of red-gold hair." http://spartacus-educational.com/ARTcarrington.htm

- "... a sturdy figure, dressed in a print dress, made after the pattern of one in a John picture, a thick mop of golden red hair..." http://spartacus-educational.com/ARTbloomsburyG.htm

- "Her golden red hair bobbed and large blue eyes and her sense of fun, fantasy and enchantment attracted men wanting affection, love, romance, sex and friendship." https://rosclose.wordpress.com/…/dora-carrington-1893-1932…/
