Description: [THE GAME OF BRIDGE] Dame Laura Knight (1877-1970) English artist. During her long career, Knight was among the most successful and popular painters in Britain. In 1929 she was created a Dame and in 1936 became the first woman elected to the Royal Academy since its foundation in 1768. Her large retrospective exhibition at the Royal Academy, in 1965, was another first for a woman. Although Knight was known for painting amidst the world of the theatre and ballet in London, and for being a war artist during the Second World War, she was also greatly interested in, and inspired by, more marginalised communities and individuals including Gypsies and circus performers. Her success in the male-dominated British art establishment paved the way for greater status and recognition for women artists. A letter sent to Knight from a newspaper editor stating that Winston Churchill confessed that he "hardly ever" played bridge, someone retorted, "Funny that so few people of brains do." He asks Orpen "Is this observation true? Then asks "Do you play bridge, if so, whuy; if not, why Not?" Knight gives her answer signing L.K. VG.
