12" x 66", Hand-screen printed, 100% Silk Twill, hand-rolled hem. The Bloomsbury artists ran the Omega Workshops from 1913-1919 under the leadership of Roger Fry, who had defined the perception of British modern art at the beginning of the 20th century, inspired through his studies of the "Post-Impressionists." The Omega Workshop aimed to bring modern art in touch with daily life by the production of decorative but functional objects. The workshop supported young designers, employing them to design and decorate items for domestic interiors, including tableware, furniture, lamps and rugs. Roger Fry bequeathed his collection of Bloomsbury Group paintings and Omega Workshop creations to the Courtauld Institute of Art Gallery in 1934.
