Although Knight painted various subjects, her reputation was founded on paintings of the ballet and the circus, which became predominant after she moved to London. Technically of a high standard, her narrative realist works were painted in bright colours and have limited depth of expression (e.g. Ballet, 1936).
More likely it’s an original print (Not a model digital print). Signed. It’s very old.

The painting is signed on the back. This is very special an original. Hard to see another one.. Not of this size.
