Lamorna Cove by Laura Knight
Having studied at Nottingham School of Art in 1900 Knight moved to Staithes in Yorkshire before moving to Newlyn in Penwith with her husband Harold. They both became members of the Newlyn School of Painters; a growing colony of artists who had made their homes in the West of Cornwall and were drawn there by the quality of the light. Laura Knight was the first female artist to have a retrospective exhibition at the Royal Academy in 1965 and her work included scenes from Cornwall as well as paintings of circus and ballet performers and work as an official war artist at the Nuremburg trials.
Lamorna Cove is two bays west from Newlyn.
