Roger Fry (December 14, 1866 - September 9, 1934)

Goldsworthy Lowes Dickinson was a British political scientist and philosopher. He led most of his life at Cambridge, where he wrote a dissertation on Neoplatonism before becoming a fellow. He was closely associated with the Bloomsbury Group. After travelling in the Netherlands and Germany, he returned to Cambridge in 1884 and was elected to the Cambridge Conversazione Society, better known as the Cambridge Apostles. In a year or two, he was part of the circle that included Roger Fry, J. M. E. McTaggart, and Nathaniel Wedd. During Roger Fry's last year at Cambridge (around 1887), Dickinson, a homosexual, fell in love with him. After an initially intense relationship (that according to Dickinson's biography did not include sex with Fry, a heterosexual), the two maintained a long friendship. Through Dickinson, Fry met Edward Carpenter and this led to the famous portrait of Carpenter by Fry. Through Fry, Dickinson met Jack McTaggart and F. C. S. Schiller. In 1903, Dickinson helped to found the Independent Review. Fry designed the front cover.
