A wonderful exhibition of Dame Laura Knight’s paintings and drawings at The National Portrait Gallery.
Laura painted women in the work place – in maternity wards, factories, dancers back stage, circus performers behind the scenes and British Service Women.
She was the official artist at the Nuremberg Trials.
Her life in Cornwall plays a part in the recently released film ‘Summer in February’ – a fabulous film about Sir Alfred Munnings and a group of Bohemian artists called the Lamorna Group, set in Cornwall in the early 20th century.
Laura Knight Portraits is at the National Portrait Gallery, London
11th July – 13th October
Summer in February is in cinemas throughout the UK
