Book competition

23 September 2016

This week’s competition prize is Winifred Knights (1899–1947) by Sacha Llewellyn, published by Lund Humphries (£40). Click here for your chance to win.

This landmark publication provides the first full account of Knights’ life and work, and will establish Knights as one of the most original women artists of the first half of the 20th century. Drawing on previously unpublished material, including letters, diaries, sketchbooks and photographs, Sacha Llewellyn highlights the major influences on her work, most notably her experience at the Slade School of Art and the British School at Rome and her experiences of wartime England. The book was published to coincide with the accompanying exhibition at the Dulwich Picture Gallery (8 June–18 September 2016).

For your chance to win simply answer the following question and submit your details here before midday on 7 October.

What is the name of Winifred Knights’ most famous painting, for which she won the Prix de Rome?

This competition closes at midday on 7 October.

For our last competition prize we offered Rembrandt: The Painter Thinking by Ernst van de Wetering, published by Amsterdam University Press (£34.95).

What is the name of Rembrandt’s first completed group portrait, which can be seen at the Mauritshuis in The Hague?

Answer: The Anatomy Lesson of Dr. Nicolaes Tulp (1632)

Congratulations to the winner, Mark Whitaker.
