Laura Knight: Portraits
LONDON  •  National Portrait Gallery  •  Ongoing

The  artistic career of Dame Laura Knight (1877 1970), one of Britain's most popular artists of the twentieth century, took her from Cornwall to Baltimore, and from the circus to the Nuremberg Trials. She painted dancers at the Ballets Russes and Gypsies at Epsom races, and was acclaimed for her work as an official war artist.

This exhibition of over thirty portraits aims to reveal how Knight used portraiture to capture contemporary life and culture.
