Vanessa (Stephen) Bell is Notable.

Vanessa Stephen was the eldest daughter of Sir Leslie Stephen and Julia Prinsep Duckworth. She attended Sir Arthur Cope's art school in 1896, and then studied painting at the Royal Academy in 1901. She moved to Bloomsbury with her sister, Virginia and brothers Thoby and Adrian, where they met and began socializing with the artists, writers and intellectuals who would come to form the Bloomsbury Group. She married Clive Bell in 1907 and they had two sons, Julian and Quentin. Her paintings include Studland Beach (1912), The Tub (1918), Interior with Two Women (1932), and portraits of Virginia Woolf (three in 1912), Aldous Huxley (1929–1930), and David Garnett (1916). Her first solo exhibition was at the Omega Workshops in 1916.
