Portraiture was an important part of Norman Cornish's artistic practice. This exhibition features self-portraits from throughout his career showing his stylistic development as well as insights into the man himself alongside informal images of his family and more formally commissioned portraits and sketches of local characters.
This exhibition is the first time that a selection of Norman Cornish’s portraits have been brought together to form a distinct collection. Inspired by the ‘unguarded moments’ of the people around him, it is evident that from a young age Cornish not only had the skill and technicality required of formal and traditional portraiture but also saw the value in painting everyday people going about their normal lives.
