Study visit: Winifred Knights
Join OCA tutor Jim Cowan on the 2 July at the Dulwich Picture Gallery.
We will view the work of Winifred Knights. This is the first major retrospective of the award-winning Slade School artist, this exhibition will reunite all her completed paintings for the first time since their creation, including the apocalyptic masterpiece The Deluge, 1920, which attracted immense critical acclaim.
The visit will be of interest to OCA students interested in the period as well as in the technical aspects of putting a picture together and it will be a good opportunity to meet and talk to other fellow students.
‘Knights worked with determination and extreme attention to detail, and all five of her major works were supported by exquisite and numerous studies. As well as her five most famous works – A Scene in a Village Street, with Mill Hands Conversing (1919), The Deluge (1920), The Marriage at Cana (1923), Santissima Trinita (1924-30) and Scenes From The Life of St Martin of Tours (1928-1933) – nearly 120 intricate preparatory studies, illustrations and portraits will provide a true insight into the artistic processes of this incredibly talented and under-appreciated woman artist.
Please note as this is a ticketed event there will be a £10 booking fee for students, to reserve your place please complete this form or email email@example.com for more information.
