Forthcoming auction at Gorringes in Lewes

Sale of Private Collection of Bloomsbury Paintings at Gorringes aims to raise over £11,000 in support of Charleston

A private collection of Bloomsbury paintings is to be sold on behalf of the Charleston Trust at Gorringes Auctioneers on 8th September. Featuring works by Vanessa Bell, Duncan Grant, Roger Fry and Angelica Garnett, the pictures have been donated to the Trust to raise funds for the ongoing conservation and running of the house museum as it embarks on a major development project.

Charleston was the country home of the renowned Bloomsbury group of writers and artists and its forthcoming development, the Charleston Barn Project, will deliver much-needed facilities to the thousands of visitors that flock there each year.
