Dates, address & more

A talk by Pamela Gerrish Nunn, author & professor of Art History & Theory at Canterbury University, New Zealand. In the 1938 book Women of To-day, Laura Knight was declared to be 'at the top of the tree', one of the leading artists of the day and an inspiration to other women.

This illustrated talk looks at Knight in comparison with others of her generation, famous and not-so-famous, putting her success in context.
