Vita Sackville West was 17 in this portrait. She did hide it in the attic thinking it was too smart for Sissinghurst. #vitasackvillewest #sissinghurst #portrait #england #englishinterior #bloomsburygroup #virginiawoolf #nicolson #garden #castle #antiques #delaszlo

Owned by the early 20th century Bloomsbury Group, which included the likes of Virginia Woolf, Vanessa Bell, John Maynard-Keynes and Duncan Grant, Charleston House served as a country retreat for artists and intellectuals to escape London and get inspired by the Lewes countryside. 🌾🌻The 16th century house is now open to visitors to mull over the hand-painted details and murals painted by Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grant, who covered every inch in Bloomsbury-esque painting, from door handles to fireplaces, baths and curtains. ✨🏡🌞 #VanessaBell #DuncanGrant #BloomsburyGroup

Duncan James Corrowr Grant (1885-1978). 'Flowers Against Chintz', 1956. I find the colour combinations in this painting so joyous and tasteful. Bright but not garish. Terribly chic don't you think? #duncangrant #bloomsburygroup #stilllife #flowers

Final post from the dream house?

So still and beautiful at Charleston this morning.

I was really astonished by this painting, it has some enchantment to it which scares, intrigues you and amazes in the same time! ❤✨
This painting is yet another by John Singer Sargent. This one was done in 1889-1890 and shows miss Elsie Palmer. She was at this time about 17 years old.

The portrait is very typical Sargent and was one of the paintings that would make him more popular on the English market - American himself. The portraits pulls off being both beautiful and almost scary at the same time, a rare thing indeed.

It is really a rather simple and straightforward picture of a teenage girl, but there is something about the way she is portrayed that makes her more than a pretty face, maybe because she is not painted as very much of a beauty with eyes that seems to be almost sunk into the face and the straight hair that has the same colour as the back-ground and almost makes her become one with it. There is not even a charming little smile for the onlooker. The girl is dead serious.

She is dressed in high-collard white dress with long sleeves and a white belt at the waist. She also has a grey shawl laying next to her, making it almost hard to determine if this is the portrait of a girl going to a party or a convalescent.

Miss Elsie Palmer was born in 1873 as the daughter to a wealthy American from Colorado who had moved to England with his family. She later married the British novelist Leo Myer (born in 1881 and who committed suicide in 1944), a fringe member of the Bloomsbury Group. She died in 1955.

The most amazing house I've had the pleasure of looking around. Everything is so untouched and simply gorgeous. I urge anyone who loves textiles, design or learning to visit Charleston House.

Henri Doucet's marvellously austere portrait of Vanessa Bell from 1912 sold to a client earlier this year. Doucet shared a studio with Modigliani in Montparnasse and was a close friend of Roger Fry and the Bloomsbury Group. He was killed on the Western Front in 1915. #henridoucet, #vanessabell, #rogerfry, #modigliani, #bloomsburygroup, #historicportrait, #artcollecting, #thecourtgallery

That one time at the Fitzroy Tavern in London, where I went crazy and took off-centre photos because I was too excited about being amongst the likes of the Bloomsbury group, including Virginia Woolf. ❤️#poetsofinstagram #poetrycommunity #london #bloomsburygroup #writerscommunity #writersofinstagram #art #literature #pub #writers #legends #virginiawoolf

Today I'm running a clay workshop @charlestontrust for their #youngbohemians summer programme teaching how to make sculptures along the lines of my #botanicalstructures inspired by the glorious garden #ceramics #clay #clayworkshop #floralceramics #teaching #craft #bloomsburygroup
