London Diary | Virginia Woolf: Art, Life And Vision, National Portrait Gallery

Since Thursday 10 July 2014, Virginia Woolf: Art, Life and Vision explores the life and work of the iconic writer through the artistic lens of portraiture: paintings, drawings, photographs, and more. 

Virginia Woolf (1882-1941) is one of England’s most celebrated female modernist authors, major lyrical novelist in English language and a significant figure in London’s literary society of the interwar period.

In 2014, London’s National Portrait Gallery dedicates a major exhibition that dwells between portraiture and literature to this outstanding intellectual, author and activist’s early life.

Virginia Woolf: Art, Life and Vision, curated by biographer and leading authority on the Bloomsbury Group, Frances Spalding, explores all facets of the extraordinary writer Virginia Woolf, painting an expressive picture of her exceptional achievements and her sense of modernity.
