About this artwork

In 1902, Virginia Woolf, a key figure in the Bloomsbury group of writers, artists, and intellectuals, was photographed by British photographer George Charles Beresford. Beresford took a side profile shot of Woolf and used a method involving platinum salts to develop the image. This technique brought out a wealth of subtle shades, highlighting her fair complexion and striking features. This reproduction is color-matched to the original and has been given the green light by the National Portrait Gallery. Every time someone buys one, it helps support the museum's work.

About the artist

George Charles Beresford (1864-1938) was a noted photographer. Post his college days in 1882, he ventured to India as a civil engineer, but due to severe malaria, he had to retreat back to England. Between 1902 and 1932, he carved a niche for himself as a portraitist in Yeomans Row, Knightsbridge, London, crafting platinotype portraits of prominent writers, artists, and politicians. His works were regularly featured in notable publications like The World's Work, The Sketch, The Tatler, and The Illustrated London News. During WWI, he generously donated his earnings to the Red Cross. Later in life, he transitioned into an antique dealer. In 1943, his secretary, Miss Toplis, sold some of his original negatives and prints to the National Portrait Gallery.
