Whittaker Suite, the Old Town Hall

The unconventional maverick Laura Knight

Best known for sunny beach scenes and circus performers, Laura Knight (1877-1970) could also be an unconventional and sometimes maverick artist. Incredibly, in 1936, she became the first woman to be elected to the Royal Academy. Her long career showed her to be a perceptive and skilled artist.
