Vanessa Bell

Vanessa Bell was a British painter and interior designer who established her reputation as part of the avant-garde Bloomsbury Group. Her most innovative works, which fused fine art and decorative design, show the influence of post-Impressionism, Matisse and Cubism.

Bell was the elder sister of writer Virginia Woolf. She was married to the art critic Clive Bell, with whom she had an open marriage, and had intimate relationships with the artist Duncan Grant and the critic and artist Roger Fry. In 1910, Fry organised the first Post-Impressionism exhibition in London. This made a strong, if brief, impact on Bell’s artistic development, and marked a milestone in the history of British taste.
