Provenance: The Artists Family


Lessons in anatomy were a central feature of Slade training. Knights attended the lectures given by Professor George Dancer Thane.  In its use of decisive contours and subtle shading, this study exemplifies the Slade tradition which sought to emulate the draughtsmanship of earlier masters such as Durer and Ingres. 

Knights’ youngest sister Eileen was a willing sitter and would subsequently act as a model in many compositions.
