The NPG yesterday revealed the exhibition, which opens in July, would look at Woolf, one of the most celebrated writers of the 20th century, through 100 works including paintings, photographs and archive material.
Curated by biographer and art historian Frances Spalding (who wrote Virginia Woolf: Art, Life and Vision), the exhibition includes distinctive portraits of Woolf by her Bloomsbury Group contemporaries Vanessa Bell and Roger Fry and photographs by Beresford and Man Ray, as well as intimate images recording her time spent with friends and family. Woolf’s early life and literary achievements, alongside lesser known aspects of her time in London and political views, are brought into focus through in-depth research and a remarkable array of personal objects including letters, diaries and books.
A programme of special events including talks, tours and workshops complements the exhibition.
