Shone, The Art of Bloomsbury: Roger Fry, Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grant, London, 1999, p.205, fig.120D. Edwards, Winter Sonata, Virago Modern Classics, London, (front cover illustration)J. Rolls, The Bloomsbury Cookbook, London, 2014, p.232 (illus.)In the Spring of 1920, Roger Fry visited in Vence, staying at Maison Barrière with friends and fellow artists. Amongst this group were the sculptor Marcel Gimond and his wife Julie, both depicted in the present work. Gimond created a number of portrait busts of Fry in the early 1920s. An example of which is now held in London's National Portrait Gallery. The third figure present in Fry's painting, playing a guitar, is the illustrator and Post-Impressionist artist Sonia Lewitska. Lewitska was married to Fry's close friend Jean Marchand. Although present in a small oil sketch of the same scene he is not depicted in the present work. Fry admired Jean Marchand, including his work in both of his groundbreaking exhibitions held at the Grafton Galleries; Manet and the Post-Impressionists, 1910 and The Second Post Impressionist Exhibition, 1912. Through their friendship Marchand became closely associated with the Bloomsbury Group and Fry even dedicated a whole chapter in his 1920 book of essays Vision and Design, observing his move away from cubism; Having once learned by this process of willed and deliberate analysis how to handle complex forms, he has been able to throw away the scaffolding and to construct palpably related and completely unified designs with something approaching the full complexity of natural forms, through the lucid statement and ease of handling which it actuates testify to the effect of his apprenticeship in Cubism. (R.Fry, Vision and Design, London, 1920, p.282)Although Fry wrote this about the work of Jean Marchand one cannot help but feel that he could have had in mind his fellow Bloomsbury artists Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grant after only recently closing the doors on the Omega Workshop due to lack of funds.

Clarence Whaite, student of Marion Richardson, later lecturer at the Institute of Education. In 1947, Athene, The Journal of the Society for Education in Art, dedicated a special edition to honour Marion Richardson (1892-1946). Notable patrons and advisory panel members of the Society for Education in Art included Duncan Grant, Henry Moore, Herbert Read, and Sir Kenneth Clark. Marion Richardson, a trailblazer in art education, significantly influenced the reformation of the education system, particularly in the teaching of art and handwriting for young children. Her collaborative work, Writing and Writing Patterns, published by the University of London Press Ltd with support from Edward Johnston, a British craftsman, and calligrapher, became an integral resource in classrooms for both students and teachers.Richardson's academic journey at Birmingham School of Art, under the mentorship of Mr. Catterson-Smith, former assistant to Edward Burne-Jones and William Morris, propelled her innovative approach to teaching. Recognising the limitations of traditional teaching methods, Richardson and Catterson-Smith sought to develop practices that fostered imagination and visualisation in art as a form of practice. In 1912, Richardson achieved her Art's Master Certificate and was appointed as an art teacher at Dudley Girls' High School.'The first thing that impressed me about Marion Richardson were her enthusiasm, freshness, drive and utter sincerity.' S. Frood, Former Headmistress of Dudley High SchoolMarion Richardson ardently believed that art served as a medium through which a child could articulate their individuality and emotions. Striving to depart from the conventional classroom approach that encouraged children to replicate objects, places, and people, Richardson emphasised a shift towards a more liberated and expressive engagement with art in school. She recognised that the freedom and expression cultivated through active involvement in artistic practices could significantly enhance a child's overall educational experience, positively influencing various aspects of their development. She actively encouraged children to embellish the school's upholstery, incorporating linocut designs for curtains and decorating scenery, furniture and costumes for school plays. Outside of school, Richardson pioneered reformative arts and crafts initiatives. Richardson led one of the first experiments in art therapy at Winson Green Prison in Birmingham. Initially collaborating with women, practicing drawing and painting, Richardson soon transitioned to working with young men. In response to favourable feedback she extended the teaching to include embroidery and other art forms. In 1917, Roger Fry became aware of Richardson's work and invited her to exhibit a group of her student's paintings and drawings at an exhibition held at the Omega Workshop in London, alongside established artists such as Duncan Grant and Vanessa Bell. In 1923, the Dudley children held an exhibition at the Independent Gallery, Grafton Street in London which proved extremely popular. This platform launched Richardson's career as a teacher of art and in 1930 she was offered position of lecturer at the London Day Training College. The friendship between Marion Richardson, Roger Fry and his sister Margery Fry, whom Richardson had initially met in Birmingham when Fry was warden to the women's residence, flourished and they are known to have holidayed together in France in 1925. The present collection of works by Roger Fry were all gifted to Richardson or purchased directly from Fry. Family records suggest that Richardson was regularly gifted works throughout her career most notably by Duncan Grant. This collection of works have remained with the family and are making their debut at auction. 'Unforgettable impression of beauty, devotion and freedom.' Herbert Read

                ROGER FRY (BRITISH 1866-1934) THE RAVINE, THE ALPILLES, CIRCA 1932-33 oil on canvas, signed (54cm (21 1/4in), 65cm (25 1/2in)) Literature: Shone, Richard E. (ed.) 'The Art of Bloomsbury: Roger Fry, Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grant', London 1999, repr. b/w p.13 fig.4. Note: In his 1999 essay 'The Artists of Bloomsbury: Roger Fry, Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grant', Richard Shone used this painting to illustrate the point that 'Roger Fry, seen as the arch-exponent of formal values and aesthetic decorum, was frequently drawn in his painting to the most romantic and picturesque aspects of the landscape - to the jagged profiles of unpopulated hillsides, to ravines and mountain pools.' (op.cit., p.13). Roger Fry’s appreciation of, and efforts to promote Post-Impressionist art were key to introducing Britain to recent developments in European art. Fry curated two Post-Impressionist exhibitions in London, the first in 1910 and the second in 1912, with the intention of showing the ways in which Impressionism had expanded and developed from its French origins and taken root in other countries, specifically in England. The work of French artists such as Cézanne, Bonnard and Matisse were juxtaposed with that of a new generation of British artists made in response to art made on the Continent. Fry’s intention was to show the artistic and cultural exchange between Great Britain and mainland Europe. One of Fry’s ambitions was to encourage a better appreciation of Cézanne’s achievements and he was the first British critic to champion his work. Fry’s 1927 study, Cézanne, remains the supreme introduction to a painter he regarded as the ‘greatest master of modern times’. On a trip to France in October 1919, Fry spent time in Cézanne’s hometown of Aix-en-Provence, the surrounding areas painted by the artist, and his house, the Jas de Bouffan. The magnificent countryside inspired Fry to paint, and led him to declare Cézanne a ‘pure naturalist’. Fry believed form, not subject matter, should be the primary expressive element in art. Cézanne’s aims closely aligned with Fry’s ideal, as it gave formal expression to nature. In his 1927 study, Fry asserts that Cézanne’s art is the antithesis of the abstraction of Cubism, constantly questing instead to explore the inner face of nature. He also notes the artist’s powers as a colourist as among the supreme aspects of his genius. Typical of Cézanne’s style, according to Fry, are the pulsating rhythms and constructed strokes that create geometric forms. According equal emphasis to all areas of the canvas, the entire picture surface is imbued with ‘the vibration and movement of life’. In one passage, Fry writes ‘Cézanne reduces actual objects to pure elements of space and volume. In their abstraction, the objects are then brought back into the concrete world of real things by expressing them in an incessantly varying and shifting texture. They retain their abstract intelligibility and regain that reality of actual things which is absent from all abstractions.’ For all his academic influence, however, Fry primarily saw himself as an artist. His championship of Post-Impressionism was accompanied by a dramatic change in his own painting, becoming more experimental in style. His landscapes are arguably Fry’s most notable contribution to English Post-Impressionism, in which trees are ground down to the simplest geometrical shapes and clouds stalk the skies. He was interested in the capturing of light and mood of places, and his desire for clear-cut shapes and colours is expressed in sturdy geometric shapes. Fry was a regular visitor to southern France for much of his life. He had great admiration for its various landscapes, for the light and colours of the Midi, for the lifestyle and customs of its inhabitants, its broadly democratic attitude to culture, its architecture and artistic heritage. His extensive trips deepened his love of Provence, where he was eventually to buy a farmhouse. In 1931 he acquired Mas d’Angirany, on the Route d’Antiques leading out of St Remy-de-Provence, which he shared with Charles and Marie Mauron. It was surrounded by olive groves and the upper floor looked across to Les Alpilles, extraordinary geological formations that have been weathered into grotesque shapes and pitted by ravines that have cut their way through the rocks. Vincent Van Gough’s ‘Ravine’, painted shortly after his arrival at the Saint-Paul asylum in 1889, depicts a nearby ravine in Saint-Remy; a possible inspiration for Fry’s later production of a similar scene. Frances Spalding has written ‘some of Fry’s most lyrical late landscapes, with their observation of flickering light an intense responsiveness to the spirit of the place, were painted in the area in and around St Remy’. Until the end of his life, Provence would remain Fry’s favourite part of France. It was a painter’s love, ultimately visual.

Lawrence, Marc Chagall, Henri Matisse, Christopher Wood, and Gwen Raverat. The present lot was executed on one of several trips Fry made to Vence. On this particular trip, taken in the spring of 1920, Fry was accompanied by the French artist, Jean Marchand. In his 1920 publication of the influential work, Vision and Design, which comprised a collection of twenty-five essays he had written between 1900 and 1920, Fry dedicated a chapter to Marchand, whom he credited for discarding the 'scaffolding of cubism'.

                Est: £800 - £1,200

                Roger Fry, British 1866-1934- St Francis giving his cloak to a destitute nobleman, after Giotto; oil on canvas, 48x46cm Note: The present picture is a copy after a fresco by Giotto in the Upper Basilica of San Francesco in Assisi. In 1917 Fry organised an exhibition at the Omega Workshops called ‘Copies and Translations of Old Masters’, to which he invited all the artists who were associated with the Omega to contribute. The intention was to encourage young artists not to make perfect copies of the originals, but rather to learn new things while making a loose copy or study of an Old Master painting. Fry chose to copy Giotto. He later hung some of these copies in among his collection of paintings in his home at 48 Bernard Street in London. A photograph of his dining-room, reproduced on p. 260 of Frances Spalding’s Roger Fry: Art and Life, shows a copy of a Giotto fresco hanging on the wall. We are grateful to Dr Frances Spalding for her assistance with the cataloguing of this lot. In a gilded frame. Please refer to department for condition report

Spalding, Roger Fry: Art and Life, London, 1999, no.59, illustrated Exhibition catalogue, C. Green (ed.), Art Made Modern, Roger Fry’s Vision of Art, London, 1999, p. 122, no. 77, fig. 72, illustrated Painted in 1917, Roger Fry’s depiction of Lalla Vandervelde ranks among his finest portraits. Lalla wears an alluring low-cut yellow dress and in the background is a vase of paper flowers from the Omega Workshops as well as a piece of Omega designed ‘Margery’ fabric. The work belongs to a striking group made in the First World War which includes Edith Sitwell and Nina Hamnett. The setting was Fry’s studio at 21 Fitzroy Street. In December 1917 Fry wrote to Vanessa Bell that ‘Lalla’s very good and punctual and sits very well’ (R. Fry to V. Bell, 12th December 1917). Lalla and Fry were great friends and almost certainly lovers (London gossips certainly thought so). She supported Fry’s Omega Workshops, bought paintings by Duncan Grant and Vanessa Bell, and in early 1916 Fry and his Omega assistants decorated her Chelsea flat for her. (Several pieces, including her bed, are now in the Victoria & Albert Museum). Born Charlotte Helen Frederique Speyer in Camberwell, London in 1870, Lalla’s father Eduard Anton Speyer, of German Jewish descent, was a rich financier. In 1901 she became the wife of Emile Vandervelde (1866-1938), a prominent leader in the Belgian Socialist Party and later a Minister of State. During and after the First World War Lalla entertained many writers and painters and was devoted to the Belgian refugees in London. Although later estranged from her husband, she remained faithful to his Socialist and pacifist beliefs and was not averse to using her position as a Minister’s wife to further any cause she espoused. Osbert Sitwell described her as ‘a woman of striking intelligence and humour’… her war-time home being …  ‘the resort of modern painters and writers, and of the more unconventionally minded of politicians…. Intrepid in mind, with a liking for all new ideas, in music, literature or politics – indeed she tended, perhaps, to like the new for its newness’ (O. Sitwell,  Laughter in the Next Room, 1949, p. 9). She was friendly with a number of writers including Arnold Bennett and George Bernard Shaw, and was intimate with Edward Elgar. In 1925 she published her autobiography titled Monarchs and Millionaires. Her character is nicely summed up in her late motor racing endeavours, having taken up the sport as a hobby at the age of sixty. Allanah Harper, editor of Echanges, describing Lalla in Brussels in the late 1920s with ‘flaming, dyed red hair’ driving very fast in an open-topped car. Rumoured to have kept a stream of lover into her old age, Lalla died in London in 1965. Fry had founded The Burlington Magazine in 1903, been appointed Curator of Paintings at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York in 1906, and in 1910 organised the seminal exhibition Manet and the Post-Impressionists at the Grafton Galleries, London. It was at this time also that he became associated with the Bloomsbury circle, and it was during the following decade that portraiture in his oeuvre flourished. Working closely with Clive Bell and Duncan Grant, Fry sought to create a ‘directness of sensuous response’ in his compositions, his sitters typically being relaxed, with his finished works epitomizing the personal relationships held between him and his subjects, as in the present example.  Artist's Resale Right may apply on this lot
