This major retrospective exhibition will celebrate one of the most popular English artists of the twentieth century, a pioneering painter of performers, war and marginalised communities with a long and successful career that saw her break conventions and achieve many firsts for female artists.

Laura Knight: A Panoramic View will present an in-depth look at Knight’s career, bringing together over 160 works from public and private collections, including iconic works as well as rarely seen paintings and graphic works as well as designs for ceramics, jewellery and costume.

This highly anticipated exhibition surveys Knight’s career spanning almost a century – from her fascination with the backstage world of ballet and theatre and portraits of people’s everyday lives, to depictions of marginalised communities and racial segregation in America. Powerful commissions created as an official war artist during the Second World War will also be on display.

A rare opportunity to see the largest exhibition of Dame Laura Knight in over 50 years at MK Gallery.
