WHAT:

Vanessa Bell’s Hogarth Press Designs
Vanessa Bell (1879–1961) was an English painter, designer and important member of the Bloomsbury Group, a cluster of culturally influential figures in early 20th-century London. Throughout her career she designed many book jackets and illustrations for Hogarth Press, a British publishing house founded by Bell’s sister, author Virginia Woolf, and Leonard Woolf. This exhibition showcases several examples of Bell’s exquisite, yet simple, designs.
