Vanessa BellWorks by the acclaimed artist Vanessa Bell, a central figure of the Bloomsbury Group, go on display at Dulwich Picture Gallery from February 2017. The exhibition charts her move from the refined Impressionism of her early training to a more radical, experimental style. Approximately 100 works, arranged thematically, reveal Bell's bold experiments with abstraction, colour and form. Through portraiture, still life and landscape oil paintings as well as ceramics, fabrics, works on paper, photographs and related archival material we can see how Bell became a pivotal figure in modernist painting.
