Norman Cornish Behind The Scenes
There are four themes in the book covering: Mining, Observations of People, Bar Scenes and Street Scenes. The previously unseen sketches reveal the initial work developed to create his iconic images so typical of life in his era.
Extracted from his sketchbooks and archive, Norman’s own comments and thoughts feature throughout the book. There is also a section taking the reader into Norman’s studio, as well as maps showing the locations of his most memorable images in his home town, together with the Pit Road which is featured for the first time. The essay contributions provide new insight and appreciation of Norman’s work with direct references to the sketches, leading the reader towards a new understanding.
