The Bloomsbury Painters

In March of 2010 I gave a lunchtime presentation on ‘The Bloomsbury Painters,’ focusing mostly on Vanessa Bell, Duncan Grant and Roger Fry. In addition to looking at reproductions of some of their paintings, we also talked about their relationships with each other and the rest of the Bloomsbury group, particularly Vanessa’s sister, Virginia Woolf; her husband, Clive Bell; and the economist John Maynard Keynes.

Thanks to all who came, and to our host and hostess, Mr. and Mrs. Philip Fisher, who graciously brought along their Omega workshop dinner plate, designed by Vanessa.

Hope to see you all at the upcoming series of School Days, The Literary Twenties.
