Laura Knight: 'The Staithes Sketchbook'
March 7, 2024
A selection of 49 original sketches by ACS member Laura Knight are now on display for the first time at Chris Beetles Gallery.

Originally sold as part of the artist’s studio sale in 1975, the collection of drawings provides an insight into Knight’s time working and living in the small fishing village of Staithes in North Yorkshire during the artist’s early 20s.


Intensely personal in their casual composition, the drawings document the artist’s time working as part of the Staithes Group of young artists, amongst whom was her future husband and fellow ACS member Harold Knight, capturing scenes of daily life in the small fishing community.


Until 16 Mar
Chris Beetles Gallery, 8 & 10 Ryder Street, St James’s, London SW1Y 6QB
