DESCRIPTION

British painter-turned-printmaker Laura Knight portrays her subject matter – ranging from the circus to cabarets and ballet – with a deeply compassionate vision. The 70 works in the exhibition include a selection from Watteau to Chagall which examine the relationship between performance and spectator.

Organized by the National Gallery of Canada. Made possible thanks to the gift of Laura Knight works made by G. Fredric Bolling and Valerie A. Withington through the American Friends of Canada (now the Council for Canadian American Relations).
