About

Vanessa Bell (1879 –1961) was one of the leading artists associated with the Bloomsbury Group, the avant-garde community of artists, writers and philosophers who pioneered literary and artistic modernism in Britain at the beginning of the 20th century.

This focused display in the Project Space will be the first devoted to The Courtauld’s significant collection of Bell’s work. Comprising 3 paintings, 1 woodcut and 8 works on paper, it will include her masterpiece A Conversation, as well as the bold, abstract textile designs she produced for the Omega Workshops, led by influential artist and critic Roger Fry in London, which aimed to abolish the boundaries between the fine and decorative arts and bring the arts into everyday life.

The display will highlight one of the most cutting-edge artists working in Britain in the early 20th century.
