Daughter of Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grant, married to (late great) David Garnett

Daughter of Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grant. Although her parentage was well known in Bloomsbury circles, she did not learn that Clive Bell was not her father until she was nineteen. She spent her childhood at Charleston and in the South of France and went on to become an actress and artist, collaborating with Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grant on the murals for Berwick Church. Much to her parents horror, she married David Garnett, her father's former lover, in 1942.
