A collection of letters between members of the Bloomsbury Group and Helen Anrep are to be auctioned on 3rd September. Helen Anrep, Roger Fry’s partner from the 1920s until Fry’s death in 1934, became a close friend of the Bloomsbury Group members despite not being an artist or an intellectual herself. She was extemely interested in the arts and the letters contain a broad range of topics from gardening to family issues.
The letters are estimated to fetch between £50,000 – £80,000. I am off to buy a lottery ticket.
