Winifred Knights

Winifred Knights (1899-1947) was a highly individual artist who adopted a distinctive style of modernism. She trained at the Slade under Henry Tonks and in 1920 painted, as a scholarship piece, The Deluge. It has come to be recognised as her masterpiece.
In the 1920s and 30s, Knights produced a range of remarkable and original works in the company of her husband, Stephen Monnington. She died in 1947, aged 47. No newspaper published her obituary.
