Laura Knight PortraitsEnglish impressionist Dame Laura Knight (1877-1970), known for her highly distinctive and vivid paintings of the London ballet and theatre scene, was the first woman to be given a retrospective at the Royal Academy with her 1965 exhibition. The artist who was an Official War Artist in the Second World War, and who recorded the Nuremburg Trials, is the subject of a temporary exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery which draws on Knight's own writing in two autobiographies to give an insight into her life and art.

About National Portrait Gallery

The National Portrait Gallery houses portraits of significant figures from the late 15th century to the present day. This isn't the place to come for serious works of exceptional artistic merit - the overriding aim of the National Portrait Gallery is to reflect the status of the sitter, not the artist - but where else in London could you hope to find The Beatles, Henry VIII, Sir Richard Branson and JK Rowling all hanging out together? The appeal of this gallery (opened in 1856) rests simply in its comprehensive commemoration of British history from the late 15th century to the present day through the medium of portraiture.
