The Lost World of Norman Cornish

  • 28 March — 25 July 2014 *on now

Norman Stansfield Cornish was 65 when he wrote his autobiography. He called it ‘A Slice of Life’ and indeed it was just that although one could say that it was brought into being a little prematurely given that a further three decades of remarkable activity were to follow its publication.

He was born in 1919, one year after the end of the First World War and seven years before the General Strike. Major events, the Depression of the 1930s, World War II, pit disasters, the Nationalisation of the coalmines provided a mere backdrop to his life which was resolutely focused upon his art and his family.
