Winifred Knights (1899-1947):
Self-portrait sketching at a table
Unmounted (ref: 7004)
Watercolour over pencil on paper
Provenance: Private Collection
Produced soon after Knights enrolled at the Slade, this self-portrait creates a candid image of the artist as a young woman. Knights represents herself in the act of sketching, her direct gaze conveying a strong sense of self-confidence.
