Description: The artist Harold Knight (1874-1961)lived here in his latter years with his wife Dame Laura Knight.

Harold was born in Nottingham and studied at the Nottingham School of Art where he met his wife to be Laura Johnson (1877- 1970). He continued his studies at the Royal College of Art and then in Paris under Jean Paul Laurens and Benjamin Constant, a conventional academic training.

However, following his return to England he and Laura painted in the Yorkshire fishing village of Staithes, where a colony of artists worked from the 1880's. On their return to London the Knights moved to St. Johns Wood.

Harold Knight was elected A.R.A. in 1928 and R.A. in 1937, portraits dominating his exhibited works from 1930 until his death in 1961.

His works can be found in museums in Penzance, Penlee Art Museum; Nottingham, Castle Museum; Newcastle, Laing Art Gallery; slackpool and Merthyr Tydfil.

Harold Knight died at the Colwall Park Hotel in Colwall, Herefordshire in 1961.
