Dame Laura Knight 1877-1970 was one of the leading British painters of the twentieth century. However, her rejection of Modernism and her association with the mainstream led to a decline in her reputation. This has changed over the last few years with the National Portrait Gallery taking an exhibition of her work on tour around the UK.
Although she is more well known for her paintings I really like this sketch as it captures the girl perfectly and makes me think I need to try and draw my own children more if I could get them to stand still longer than a minute.
