The Omega Workshops, spearheaded by artist and critic Roger Fry, served as the visual arts branch of the Bloomsbury Group, aiming to bridge the gap between fine and decorative arts. Located in Fitzroy Square, London, the workshops provided artists with the opportunity to earn income through the design of textiles, furniture, and household items—all marked with the distinctive omega symbol instead of individual artist names. The workshops embraced a Post-Impressionist aesthetic, showcasing elements of cubism and fauvism in various textile patterns. The featured piece, attributed to Duncan Grant or Frederick Etchells from 1913-15, currently resides in The Courtauld Gallery, London, and was generously given by Pamela Diamand in 1958.
