The Blood Coral Beads, Laren


Oils on board13½"x9½", signed.

The Knights went to paint in Holland with Hopwood on two occasions shortly after they were married. They were still painting in Staithes and living in Roxby between their visits to Laren. It was during these two extended visits abroad that Harold in particular developed an interest in painting interiors. This one is beautifully composed and in a restricted palette which emphases the sense of calm in the picture and focuses on the way the light from the window illuminates the scene.
