Dame Laura Knight (1877–1970) was one of the most popular and pioneering British artists of the twentieth century. The first full female member of the Royal Academy since the eighteenth century, Knight became famous for her backstage depictions of actors and dancers while being particularly drawn to portraying marginal social groups.
Knight produced a highly distinctive and vivid group of portraits during her career. Join us for a preview of this fascinating exhibition.
