Dulwich Picture Gallery Vanessa Bell Exhibition with MylandsVanessa Bell (1879-1961) at Dulwich Picture Gallery.

8th February-4th June 2017

At the start of an exciting new partnership with Dulwich Picture Gallery, Mylands has provided a fitting backdrop for the major retrospective: Vanessa Bell (1879-1961).

Two bespoke colours – Dulwich Picture Gallery No.1 and Dulwich Picture Gallery No. 2 - have been specially created by Mylands to adorn the gallery walls where approximately 100 oil paintings are showcased alongside fabrics, works on paper, photographs and related archival material in this first major monographic exhibition of work by the acclaimed Bloomsbury group artist.

Arranged thematically against soft off-white and neutral walls, the exhibition reveals Bell’s pioneering work in the genres of portraiture, still life and landscape while demonstrating her bold experimentation of abstraction, colour and form. The painter, a central figure of the Bloomsbury Group, has long been famed for her unconventional family life and romantic entanglements and this exhibition – for the first time ever - firmly positions Bell as an artist in her own right and a pivotal player in 20th century British art.
