Omega To Charleston

The Art of Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grant, 1910–1937

16 February 2018 – 28 April 2018 | Visit website

An exhibition of paintings and applied art by two of the most innovative and influential British artists of the 20th century invites visitors to enter Bell and Grant’s world, providing new insights to their domestic environment and their shared creative vision. Much print and even film has been devoted to their unusual personal relationship – her love for him, their child, his gay preferences, which only intensified the artistic rapport that spurred them on.
 
Highlights of the exhibition include some of the radical paintings Bell and Grant produced during their association with Roger Fry’s highly influential Omega Workshops between 1913 and 1919. Major oils from their post-impressionist years to the height of Charleston’s glory in the thirties will also be shown.
 
Omega To Charleston: The Art of Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grant, 1910–1937 is at Piano Nobile, 16 February – 28 April
Gallery Opening Hours: Monday- Friday 11am-4pm; Saturday 11am-4pm or by appointment
