For sale is a wonderful, original ink and pencil drawing of a circus strongman by one of the greatest artists of the 20th century, Dame Laura Knight. Born in 1877 in Derbyshire in very modest circumstances she soon became an acclaimed artist, working across a number of mediums. She was made a Dame of the British Empire in 1929 and the first female member of the Royal Academy in 1936. This piece can be accurately dated to 1929/30, when Knight travelled across the country with a circus, capturing the performers and audiences. This is housed within a high quality frame under museum glass.
