From the beginning, artist Dame Laura Knight impressed the masses. She was accepted into the Nottingham School of Art in 1899 at just 13 years old, a move emblematic of her career spent bucking expectations. At Nottingham, Knight studied oils and watercolors among other forms, and 12 years later sold her first commercially successful painting, The Green Feather. Dame Laura Knight's paintings often focused on female subjects who, like her, were pushing boundaries.
New movements emerged throughout her 50-year career, but Dame Laura Knight's prints and paintings consistently embraced Impressionism. For her efforts, artist Laura Knight was made a Dame in 1929, and in 1936, she became the first woman elected a full member of the Royal Academy.
