Knight, Harold (1874 - 1961)

Provenance: Frederick Riley (1867-1915) by whom acquired from the artist when a student at Nottingham Art School, 1888-1895. This drawing is to be included in the catalogue raisonné currently being compiled by R John Croft FCA, the great-nephew of the artist. 12.86x11.25 inches. Framed: 20.5x18.5 inches.
