Dame Laura Knight

Laura Knight was born in Long Eaton, Derbyshire, England, and studied art at the Nottingham School of Art at the age of thirteen. She became famous as an artist who worked in the figurative, realist tradition. Her work included oils, water colors, etching, aquatint, and drypoint. Knight's success in the male-dominated British Art establishment created a path for the status and recognition of women artist's. She began etching in the 1920's and excelled in her aquatints of circus people, animals, the ballet, and portraits of women and Gypsies. In 1929 she was knighted a Dame, and in 1936 became the first woman elected to a full membership in the Royal Academy. Two autobiographies were written by her, Oil Paint and Grease Paint and The Magic of a Line. She was also recognized for her work as a war artist during World War II. Dame Laura Knight died at the age of 92, a few days before an exhibition of her work at the Nottingham Castle Art Gallery and Museum. Reference: Wikipedia and the Tate Museum, London.
