Letter from Vanessa Bell, 46 Gordon Square, Bloomsbury, London, to Duncan Grant, Paris, where Jacques Copeau's staging of a version of 'Twelfth Night' has been postponed. She reports on the successful Friday Club exhibition, singling out David Bomberg (whose works included Tate's 'Vision of Ezekial' [1912; T01197]) and C.R.W. Nevinson for praise among the otherwise derivative 'young' painters. Roger Fry with his patron Princess Mechtilde Lichnowsky is organising pots at Mitcham to be painted at the Omega Workshops. She also speculates about Grant's relationship with Lytton Strachey, currently staying with Bell. Also mentions Clive Bell (who has recently published 'Art'), Henry Lamb, Desmond MacCarthy and the Novel Club, George Mallory (who criticised Grant's 'Adam and 'Eve'), Pablo Picasso, the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, and Margery Snowden.
