This book provides the only first full account of the life and work of Winifred Knights (1899-1947), the first woman to win the Prix de Rome (1920) and one of the outstanding, but until recently neglected, British women painters of the first half of the 20th century. It examines Knights' art in the context of interwar Modernism, assessing her contribution to the revival in this period of both Decorative Painting and religious imagery.
