Annunciation

Annunciation by Vanessa Bell

A site-specific painting on plaster board fixed to the south nave wall. Borrowing from rennaisance depictions of the Annunciation, Bell's mural is yet particularly characteristic of a Bloomsbury style even featuring the garden beds at Charleston Farmhouse (three miles west of Berwick).
