Flowers on a Balcony

Purchased at the 107th Royal West of England Academy Annual Exhibition, 1959

 

Vanessa Bell was an English painter and interior designer, a member of the Bloomsbury Group and the sister of Virginia Woolf. She is quoted saying “I do not think it matters whether one agrees or not as long as one is forced to think” and was a very educated and intelligent individual. The casually arranged flowers here suggest freshness, beauty, and a gentle breeze on a sunny day.
