Immerse yourself in the avant-garde legacy of the Omega Workshops, founded by the artist and critic Roger Fry. Serving as the visual arts branch of the Bloomsbury Group, this workshop, nestled in Fitzroy Square, London, aimed to bridge the gap between fine and decorative arts. The Omega Workshops offered artists a platform to derive income from crafting textiles, furniture, and household items, all proudly adorned with the distinctive omega symbol instead of individual artist names. Influenced by Post-Impressionist aesthetics, with hints of cubism and fauvism evident in its textile patterns, this piece, attributed to Duncan Grant or Frederick Etchells (1913-15), resides in The Courtauld Gallery, London, a testament to the workshop's enduring artistic impact.
