Dame Laura Knight was one of the most successful and celebrated English artists during the outbreak of the First World War and was commissioned to paint Ruby Loftus, an outstanding factory worker. Loftus had mastered complex engineering skills in a very short space of time. Industrial machinery was also a new subject of Knight’s work, but she was praised, like Loftus for proving herself in a traditionally male environment. This print is colour matched to the original painting and approved by the Imperial War Museum. Every purchase supports the work of the museum.
