Duncan Grant

Duncan Grant (1885-1978)

Born in Scotland, Duncan Grant spent much of his childhood in India and Burma, where his father was a major in the army.

Showing little interest in academic studies, Duncan Grant embraced art studying under Jacques-Emile Blanche in Paris and later at the Slade School of Art. In 1905 he, along with Virgina Woolf and several other friends began meeting to discuss artistic and literary ideas, which became known as the Bloomsbury Group, later joining fellow members Roger Fry and Vanessa Bell to form the Omega Workshops in 1913.
