About this event

PLEASE READ THE FAQ'S AT THE BOTTOM OF THE PAGE TO ANSWER ALL QUESTIONS ABOUT BOOKINGS AND RECORDINGS <3

One a painter, the other a photographer but both were women who challenged stereotypical representations of their sex. In World War II, they were each tasked with creating images that informed and inspired the viewer. Their powerful depictions of women, from Laura Knight’s paintings of the home front to Lee Miller’s photography in major theatres of war, created a critical narrative which shed light on the position of women in wartime. Explore how, despite appearances to the contrary, both women had much in common in relation to their position as artists and the dialogue their work engendered.

Organiser LONDON DRAWING GROUP

Organiser of LEE MILLER AND LAURA KNIGHT: WOMEN ON THE FRONT-LINES


The London Drawing Group is a collective of three contemporary artists currently practising in London. Although our practices are individually varied and diverse, we are brought together by our shared love of and passion for drawing, and our experiences of being taught by a huge range of practising artists at the Royal Drawing School Central.

Our aim as a collective is simply to get more people drawing, making, connecting and engaging with art. We genuinely believe that art is for everyone, and that sometimes the only thing keeping people from engaging in the playful, unknown and unpredictable process of art-making, is that it can seem intimidating. Through working to break down contextual barriers through innovative methods of teaching and creating, we hope to make drawing approachable to everyone.
