William Coldstream

Portrait of Miss Anrep

1936
Anastasia Anrep's parents, Helen and Boris Anrep, were associated with the Bloomsbury Group, a circle of intellectuals active in early-twentieth-century London. William Coldstream painted her portrait over the course of three weekends at Rodwell House, near Baylham, Suffolk, the country house of Helen Anrep and her longtime partner, the influential art critic Roger Fry. The painting was purchased by art historian Kenneth Clark after it showed in the London Group exhibition of 1936.
