Laura Knight was a painter of the famous war crimes trials of 1946 but was also one of this country’s best-known artists and the first female Royal Academician since the 18th Century.

Dame Laura Knight's work encompasses Cornwall, the ballet, the circus, theatre and culminates in her depictions of the Nuremburg War Trials. She grew up in Nottingham but spent much of her time in Cornwall.
