Course aim:
this course will introduce students to the school of outdoor painters working in rural communities from the 1870s with reference to Staithes. Laura Knight, her early years and artistic development will be seen in this context.
Course description:
Between the wars Laura Knight was the most popular British painter, yet it was at Staithes that her career began. In her words and her art she vividly conveyed the life of the remarkable fisherfolk. We will explore the hardships endured by the people of the North Eastern coast's fishing communities and how their way of life inspired the art and writing of this great artist.
By the end of the course I will be able to:
1. recognise the early stages of Laura Knight's career
2. appreciate the rugged lives of north eastern fisherfolk
3. have an appreciation of Laura's vivid words and her fellow artists' pictures
4. understand Laura's relationship with her subjects
