Laura Knight

This is an original pencil signed drypoint etching by British artist:  Dame Laura Knight, R.A. R.W.S....The title of this work is:
"Sleeping Dancer".  It was created and printed in 1925 in an edition of only 18.  The image measures 9 7/8X13 3/4 inches.  A very fine and rich impression, effective use of drypoint in the velvety shadow areas.  "Laura Knight was already established as a leading British painter by the time she began printmaking. Consequently, her style was already fully formed and her bold modern approach is unmistakable throughout her printed work. It is for her circus and dressing room scenes that Dame Laura Knight is now especially famous."
