Virginia Woolf: Art, Life and VisionA major exhibition on the life and career of Viriginia Woolf, fearless feminist and author of Mrs Dalloway, Orlando and To the Lighthouse, among others, comes to the National Portrait Gallery from 10th July. Guest curated by the biographer, Frances Spalding, the exhibition explores the life of the great 20th century writer through painted portraits, photographs, drawings and rare archival material, including a letter to Woolf's sister, Vanessa Bell, written shortly before her suicide. Highlights include work by her Bloomsbury Group peers, Vanessa Bell, Duncan Grant and Roger Fry, and photographs by Man Ray, and Beck and McGregor who photographed Woolf for Vogue.

About National Portrait Gallery

The National Portrait Gallery houses portraits of significant figures from the late 15th century to the present day. This isn't the place to come for serious works of exceptional artistic merit - the overriding aim of the National Portrait Gallery is to reflect the status of the sitter, not the artist - but where else in London could you hope to find The Beatles, Henry VIII, Sir Richard Branson and JK Rowling all hanging out together? The appeal of this gallery (opened in 1856) rests simply in its comprehensive commemoration of British history from the late 15th century to the present day through the medium of portraiture.
