Behind The Scenes: The Norman Cornish Centenary Lecture

Behind The Scenes: The Norman Cornish Centenary Lecture

Norman Cornish MBE was perhaps the most significant artist to emerge from the North East of England in the 20th Century. Through his work, he recorded one of the most important passages in English history. As part of the regional celebrations of his centenary, his son-in- law Mike Thornton will present this illustrated talk. Revealing predominantly unseen works, it will cover many of the key moments in the artist’s career, including important commissions such as The Durham Miners’ Gala Mural and his works for The Port of Tyne Authority. Mike will also share images of life in Norman’s family home in Spennymoor during the 1950s and 60s and works from his trip to Paris in 1967. This is a story of the artist’s great determination and resilience to overcome adversity and prejudice to become one of the region’s most celebrated artists.
