Graphite Drawing of a Cat, Unsigned].
[Np]. [ca. 1950s]. - Approximately 320 x 235 cm (measured from mat), graphite on paper, handsomely matted and framed under Plexi. Visibly about fine (not examined out of frame). A casual portrait of a seated cat in three- quarter profile with its face turned toward the viewer. Framed, with the label of the Bloomsbury Workshop (London), noting attribution and date. Grant, Scottish painter and designer of textiles, pottery and theatre sets and costumes, was a central figure in the Bloomsbury Group. Lytton Strachey and John M. Keynes were among his early intimates, and Grant served as co-director with Vanessa Bell of the Omega Workshop. After the birth of their son, Grant and Bell lived together in an open relationship for more than four decades. After her death in 1961, he lived with his lover, poet Paul Roche, at Charleston Farmhouse, and several sketches and drawings of "Sam," the resident cat at Charleston, are known.
