The Reader (c.1910). Harold Knight (English, 1874-1961). Oil on canvas. Royal Pavilion, Libraries & Museums, Brighton & Hove. Knight studied at Nottingham School of Art under Wilson Foster. It was there that he met his future wife, Laura Johnson. Harold was a quiet character who is largely remembered, unfairly, as an adept but unexciting painter, while Laura (later Dame Laura) was flamboyant in both her life and art and achieved greater public renown.
