The Bloomsbury Group was a diverse collection of writers, musicians and artists, educated at Cambridge, and living and working in close proximity in the fashionable area of Bloomsbury, London in the 1920s and 1930s. The romantically-entangled "Bloomsberries" frequently holidayed in the remote farm house they had decorated at Charleston in Sussex. This exclusive social set featured Roger Fry, Duncan Grant, Vanessa Bell and her sister the writer Virginia Woolf, the economist George Maynard Keynes, as well as the flamboyant "Queen of Bohemia" Nina Hamnet. Fry wrote in a letter to Virginia Woolf from a train to Paris in 1928: "It is really a curse that we have become so notorious."
