Forever England – the cover

Jennifer Dee asks where the cover depicts – it’s actually a painting by Dame Laura Knight called ‘Two Girls on a Cliff’… not an especially enlightening title. Dovegreyreader blogged about Forever England here and described Dame Laura Knight as a Newlyn artist, so I would assume the painting is of that part of Cornwall?

    I’m not a 100% sure, but I am pretty certain that, yes, the painting does date from Laura Knight’s time in Cornwall.I believe that is of the cliffs at Lamorna – just around the coast from her home in Newlyn. I live in the area and so the work of the Newlyn school of artists is quite familiar to me!
