Monday hero: Laura Knight

The first work I ever saw by the British painter Laura Knight (1877-1970) was the beautiful, cool portrait of Ethel Bartlett, top left.

So it was a surprise to see her other work. Beside these elaborate, 'decent' portraits, she made lovely landscapes and romantic portraits of gypsies, workers and circus performers. A broad spectrum!

The painting top middle is called Self portrait. I don't know how she did it, maybe after a photo?

But it is beautiful and I love it!
