Synopsis

Laura Knight: A Life covers her long productive career and probes the myths and fictions that have and continue to be woven around the artist. This highly readable and objective biography covers her relationship with her husband Harold, life in the artist colonies of Staithes and Newlyn, the ballet, the circus, the theatre and her role as Official War Artist during World War 11 and recorder of the Nuremberg Trials. Barbara Morden does more than merely draw the solid lines of Dame Laura's professional and public identity, she fills in the background, expresses the light and colour of Laura Knight's vibrant personality and by also exploring the darker shades of her character gives this portrait depth and perspective. If you read just one biography of Laura Knight it should be this one.
