The Art of Bloomsbury is the first major exhibition in America dealing with the Bloomsbury Group, an important circle of early 20th-century artists which included Roger Fry,
Vanessa Bell, and Duncan Grant. Organized by the Tate Gallery in London, where it opened in November 1999, the exhibition provides a new look at the visual side of the avant-garde
Bloomsbury movement, one of the key contributors to British cultural life in this century.
Works by Bell, Fry, and Grant will be complemented by those of their contemporaries, such as
Henry Lamb, Walter Sickert, Dora Carrington and William Roberts, and by the great continental modernist painters they admired, notably Picasso, Derain, and Matisse. The exhibition will
begin its U.S. tour at The Huntington, where it will be the inaugural show in the new MaryLou and George Boone Gallery. After closing at The Huntington, the exhibition will travel to the
Yale Center for British Art. The exhibition is accompanied by a catalog. Boone Gallery.
