A brief biography of the artist Norman Cornish (adapted from Wikepedia)

Norman Stansfield Cornish (18 November 1919 1 August 2014) was an English mining artist associated with the group of working class men artists known as the 'Pit Painters'. Cornish was the last surviving member of the "Pitman's Academy" art school at the Spennymoor Settlement in County Durham in North East England. A former miner, Cornish was known for his pictures of mining community life. Cornish started work as a miner in 1933, at the age of 14. He continued to work as a miner even after his painting career was established, until he retired as a miner and became a full-time artist in 1966. Cornish was granted an honorary Master of Arts degree by Newcastle University in 1974, and an honorary doctorate by Sunderland University in 2012. To mark the 100th anniversary of Cornish's birth, the Bowes Museum organised the first "major retrospective" of Cornish's work. The exhibition was scheduled to run from November 2019 to February 2020 ...

... which is where I took these photographs - with a cheap camera - the images are just about in focus, giving a more 'impressionistic' effect to these 'earthy' paintings and sketches, and sorry about the odd reflections of lighting.
