About the artist
About the artwork
The Belle of Bloomsbury was a white bull terrier called Swirl, owned by Morris’ sister Nancy. Although he used a reference photograph (perhaps the only example of this practise in his work), Morris made several changes to the painting, emphasising Swirl’s status as an important figure in her own right. Her erect posture, and the title of the painting, lend the dog a stately air.
