Tags: oil



Provenance: Private Collection


Knights submitted this small oil painting of her mother, Mabel, for the first round of the Rome Scholarship Competition. The haystack was a motif that would appear frequently in Knights' work; a collaboration between nature and mankind in a temporal cycle, it was a powerful symbol of regeneration and harmony.
