Vanessa Bell was Virginia Woolf's older sister and close friend. Vanessa was an artist but never achieved much critical notice. Married to Clive Bell, Vanessa had several extramarital affairs with members of the Bloomsbury Group, including Roger Fry and Duncan Grant. Although she never published any works, she was also a talented writer who wrote many letters to her sister and friends.
