Dame Laura Knight (1877-1970) was one of the leading British painters of her generation, with many of her subjects taken from her intimate knowledge of the theatre, the ballet and the circus. Knight's skill in capturing movement, form and colour excels in her drawings and paintings of legendary dancers such as Karsavina and Pavlova. Published to accompany an exhibition of her theatre work, this book presents essays, commentary and 137 reproductions, including paintings and backstage and rehearsal sketches.
