Charleston: the Bloomsbury Group's retreat in pictures

A door inside Charleston the home and country meeting place for the writers, painters and intellectuals known as the Bloomsbury group. Painted by Vanessa Bell, Virginia Woolf's sister.

This amazing 1945 painting by Vanessa Bell, Charleston Drawing Room, is for sale at Messum’s (but for rather a large sum of money!). The curtain fabric, however, is available at the Charleston shop; and is to be found on the endpapers of Good Things in England.

In 1916, the artists Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grant moved to Sussex with their unconventional household. Inspired by Italian fresco painting and the Post-Impressionists, the artists decorated the walls, doors and furniture at Charleston. Charleston became the country meeting place of the Bloomsbury group and the couple went on to live together there for nearly 50 years.
