This painting of a woman reading in a sunlit garden provides an idyllic image of the Bloomsbury Group at leisure. The identity of the woman remains uncertain. The writer Virginia Woolf, Vanessa Bell’s sister, has been suggested. More probably she is Katherine Laird Cox, whose portrait by Duncan Grant is also in The Courtauld Gallery’s collection. Grant wrote many years later: ‘I see no reasons why the figure in [Fry’s] picture should not be of her.
