Our trompe l`oeil ceiling painting has a pretty cool backstory! ⁠

Julian Bell, Lewes-based painter and great-grandson of Vanessa Bell, created this incredible piece. Vanessa and her sister, Virginia Woolf, belonged to the Bloomsbury Group. ⁠

The Bloomsbury group was a circle of artists, writers and intellectuals in the first half of the 20th century, originating in the Bloomsbury home of Virginia Woolf and her sister Vanessa Bell.⁠

This painting features people who worked at Pelham House when Julian painted it. If you look closely, you can also see Julian with his paint pot! ⁠
