Just back from a visit to the Dulwich Picture Gallery to see the Winifred Knights exhibition.
This is a carefully curated exhibition which includes the artists intricate preparatory studies alongside her major works, giving an insight into her in-depth artistic processes.
After winning a scholarship to study in Rome, Knights became inspired by the Early Italian Renaissance artists such as the wonderful Piero della Francesca. (I’ve attached one of his works for comparison).
I particularly like her use of soft muted colours. These beautiful serene paintings quietly draw you in and transfix you with their strange presence.
A lovely exhibition!
