1. Developed the art theory of significant form

Answer: Clive Bell

Arthur Clive Heward Bell, commonly known as Clive Bell, was known as an art critic. Bell's family made their fortune through coal mining, and, as such, Bell had a privileged upbringing. In his book, "Art" (1914), Bell described the theory of significant form in terms of using different lines, shapes, and colors to bring about an emotion response. Although a founding member, Bell's upbringing did not give him the admiration of the group, and at times he was thought of as a snob, womaniser, bigot and social pacifist.

Answer: E.M. Forster

E.M. Forster was probably best known for his novel "A Passage to India", published 1924, but other memorable novels were "Howards End", published in 1910 and "A Room With A View", published in 1908. During Forster's lifetime he published five novels and one further novel was released after his death.

In 1928 MacCarthy became the first editor of "Life and Letters" and became a literary critic for the "Sunday Times" newspaper.

The Cambridge Apostles were named because the original members were 12 Cambridge University students, either graduates or undergraduates. The main purpose of the group was to serve as a discussion forum, where weekly they would have a topic which one member would present and the others would then discuss it.

"The Tub", a pictures of a bather, was painted in 1917 and was intended by Bell to be displayed in Charleston Farmhouse, a property shared by Duncan Grant, David Garnett, and Bell.

One of Fry's well known paintings is "Virginia Woolf", a portrait done in 1917.
8. Changed the practice of macroeconomics and the economic policies of government

Answer: John Mayard Keynes

These ideas influenced the economic policies of governments. Keynes background was in mathematics which he developed into economic theories.
