"The artist Vanessa Stephen was the novelist Virginia Woolf's sister; perhaps the only studio photograph for which she ever sat, this was probably taken on the occasion of her marriage to the art critic Clive Bell. Both were leading members of the Bloomsbury Group, a set of bohemian artists and writers. Vanessa Bell was known for wearing daringly bright, flowing robes, but here she is more restrained in a simple dress."
Scanned and quoted from the book "Decades of Fashion" by Harriet Worsley.
