Artist: Dame Laura Knight (English, 1877-1970)
Art Size: 52cm x 42.8cm
Frame Size: 59.3cm x 50cm
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.
Framed with no glass.
