'In the Moment'.,
This review is from: Laura Knight: A Life (Hardcover)
I have finally finished reading Barbara Morden's biography of the artist Laura Knight, and admittedly, I knew very little about Laura Knight before reading this, as I came to it on the strength of Barbara's previous book on John Martin, which I cherish dearly.
As with Apocalypse Now, I was captivated from the start; it took me a long time to complete reading, and not because it was bulky - it was neatly written, and perfectly succinct, but I found that I had discovered an artist that I really had little knowledge of, only briefly recalling a couple of her paintings. I spent as much time researching Laura Knight as I did with the book, which alone shows the power this book had over me.
The tone of the book shows a true affection of this artist, and the knowledge and depth of Laura Knight emits from every page. I will definitely be recommending this.
