Graphite, chalk and watercolour 15 x 22 inches
First known exhibition The Lowry and
Nottingham Castle Museum tour Laura Knight
at the Theatre 2008
This was completed from drawings taken 1956
when the Bolshoi visited Covent Garden for the first time since the Russia Revolution
It is questioned whether the title given to this work at The Lowry exhibition is correct in that it is depicted in the Pathe News film celebrating her 90th birthday at the Upper Grosvenor Galleries and possibly this was at such time titled Backstage.
