Roger Fry (1866-1934), an influential English art critic and painter, played a pivotal role in introducing modern French art, especially Post-Impressionism, to Britain. His landmark 1910 exhibition "Manet and the Post-Impressionists" dramatically changed the British art landscape, showcasing artists like Cezanne and Van Gogh. A key member of the Bloomsbury Group, Fry influenced figures like Virginia Woolf. He founded the Omega Workshops in 1913, blending fine and decorative arts, and significantly impacted modern art appreciation in Britain.
