One of the most significant and prolific painters of the 20th century, Dame Laura Knight (1877 – 1970) was a great celebrity in her time. Her art is as loved today as it was at the height of her fame. 

One of the most significant and prolific painters of the 20th century, Dame Laura Knight (1877 – 1970) was a great celebrity in her time. Her art is as loved today as it was at the height of her fame.

This exhibition explores Knight as an artist who grew out of the Victorian era, developing and adapting her craft through a period of tumultuous change. In 1936, she was the first female artist to be welcomed with a full membership to the Royal Academy of Arts. Her career covered both world wars, and as a war artist she famously captured the Nuremberg Trials in 1946.

Worcestershire played an important part in Knight’s life and work, the dramatic landscape of the Malvern Hills a subject of her much-loved paintings. Knight and her husband, Harold, spent long periods of time in Malvern from 1933 onwards.

As well as spectacular landscapes of Worcestershire, Yorkshire and Cornwall, she painted members of local Romani communities, alongside ballet, theatre and circus performances.

Dame Laura Knight – I Paint Today is open from Saturday 13 January until Sunday 30 June 2024. It brings a stirring selection of Knight’s works to Worcestershire. Art from the Worcester City collection – including three paintings by Knight recently acquired – will be complemented by exciting loans from regional and national galleries.
