Brighton, England.- The Brighton Museum and Art Gallery in the Royal Pavillion is pleased to present “Radical Bloomsbury: The Art of Duncan Grant and Vanessa Bell 1905-25” until October 9th. “Radical Bloomsbury” establishes a new understanding of the pictorial imagination of Bloomsbury by re-evaluating the unique painting partnership of Duncan Grant and Vanessa Bell, exploring their relationship with avant-garde art from 1905 to 1925. It demonstrates how these Bloomsbury painters were among the earliest British artists to look at new developments in European art, such as French Post-Impressionist practices, and the importance of their role in modernising British art.
