Laura and Harold Knight were central figures in the Newlyn artists colony alongside Lamorna Birch, Alfred Munnings and Aleister Crowley, from 1907 until the end of the WWI. During this time Laura’s style became more impressionistic and The Beach, painted in 1908 (and in this folio) was widely admired both by other artists and the public.
