Description

Signed with initials

Laura Knight travelled with both Carmo’s and Bertram Mills’ Circuses in the late 1920s, having first painted with Bertram Mills’ Circus earlier in the decade at Olympia. She obsessively drew the performers – notably the acrobats and the clowns – and the circus animals. She had a particular interest in horses and the elephants, which she sketched incessantly.
