"Published on the occasion of: 'Laura Knight & Caroline Walker: A Femal Gaze' ; Nottingham Castle, 19 March - 5 June 2022" -- page 95.
'A Female Gaze' explores the paintings and drawings of contemporary artist Caroline Walker through the lens of Laura Knight, arguably Nottingham's most famous artist and the first women to be elected a Royal Academician. Separated by 100 years, both artists are united through their observations of women in everyday life, from moments of motherhood to women at work and the mundanity of domestic life. With essays by Jennifer Higgie and Tristram Aver, this book contibutes to rebalancing the gender bias legacy with art history, while celebrating the powerful artistic qualities to two extraordinary painters"-- Back cover.
