dulwich picture gallery

i finally made it to the dulwich picture gallery and what a trek from camden – but it was worth it;  designed by Sir John Soane  its set in lovely grounds which definitely makes for  a good day out.  included in the beautiful works on show, all  by Vanessa Bell are her book cover designs for her sister Virginia Woolf – definitely her strengths are colour and sense of pattern – i definitely felt inspired by her works and intrigued by the hedonistic lifestyle she must have led.   have afternoon tea in the cafe afterwards or pop by the little nearby gift shops on your walk from the station.

  1. You can visit Charlestown farmhouse, the house and garden in Sussex where Vanessa bell and others from the Bloomsbury group lived and visited. It’s well worth it and you can combine it with a visit to the lovely small church at Berwick where Vanessa bell and other Bloomsbury artists painted murals.
