  • Artist - Roger Fry - Biography
    Born in London in 1866, Roger Fry was to become one of the most important art critics of his time. A painter and printmaker in his own right, Fry was a central member of the Bloomsbury Group, a loose collective of artists and writers which included Virginia Woolf, Duncan Grant and Vanessa Bell. He was best known for curating two major ‘Post-Impressionist’ exhibitions in 1910 and 1912, introducing his cohort and the country at large for the first time to Manet, Cézanne, Gauguin, and Van Gogh. As an artist, Fry was a celebrated portraitist and in 1913 founded the Omega Workshops, a design studio producing decorative furniture, ceramics, and furnishings. He was also an able printmaker, and produced a number of woodcuts during the early 1920s inspired by the modernist vigour of the German Expressionists. Fry died in 1934.
