The Granary at Charleston Farmhouse by Vanessa Bell
Upcoming Exhibition

Charleston:

The Bloomsbury Muse

Philip Mould & Company are delighted to announce our upcoming exhibition Charleston: The Bloomsbury Muse from 14th September - 10th November 2021 at the gallery. 

Family retreat and home of Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grant, Charleston lies in the rural Sussex countryside in-between the Downs and the Weald. Their home became the heart and hub for creativity and experimentation for The Bloomsbury Group, from when Vanessa Bell first signed a long lease for it in 1916, until Grant's death in 1978. With its inhabitants, visitors, location, and sense of home, Charleston was a space of freedom in between two world wars, which enabled a pure, uninterrupted place for expression.

This exhibition will showcase artworks from Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grant between 1912-1948, exploring their artistic development throughout their war years at Charleston, and how their creativity was found in portraits, still-lifes, landscapes and the very walls and domestic interiors of Charleston itself.

With Charleston's inhabitants essentially locked down over the second world war, there is a connection and relationship between our most recently endured lockdowns and the experiences of Bell and Grant. This exhibition presents how place, the people, the home, and family acted as muse for the artists and was critical in their artistic, domestic, and personal development. 

We are excited to welcome you into the gallery from 14th September, to experience Charleston in London.
