Dame Laura Knight's Lopokova No. 8

I love Laura Knight's work. Immersing herself in London's theatre and ballet scene of the 1920s, she sketched and painted the colourful characters she befriended, depicting the magic of the stage, and the charm and allure of the ballerina's dressing room. 

 

Sketching dancers in action, Knight had to work swiftly to capture the split second poses, reducing lines to a minimum yet expressing vital energy. I've chosen this charcoal drawing of Lopokova as it's so full of joy; a beautiful celebration of movement and dance captured in a single drawn image.
