Lot Essay


In 1928 Roger Fry and his lover Helen Anrep bought Rodwell House, near the village of Baylham, a few miles northwest of Ipswich, Suffolk. Duncan Grant visited Rodwell in c. 1930 and painted the nearby Baylham Mill on the River Gipping. This listed structure is a grand early to mid-nineteenth-century building, virtually unchanged now from when Grant painted it ninety years ago (the cantilevered hoist projecting down from the roof has been altered).

The Mill and surrounding landscape were painted by several of the Euston Road Group of artists, including Graham Bell, Claude Rogers and William Coldstream (e.g. his well-known On the Map, 1937, Tate) as guests of Helen Anrep during the 1930s.
