Norman Cornish Art Sale


Tuesday 1 January 2019 - Tuesday 31 December 2019

A selection of original drawings are for sale by Norman Cornish, MBE 1919 – 2014.

2019 is the centenary of the birth of the famous pitman painter from County Durham.

Reflecting on his ever changing world Cornish wrote “This special world of mine is constantly changing and many of the people who inhabited it are no longer with us. Many of the places that once helped to make up that world have also passed into time … However, in my memory and I hope in my drawings they live on. I close my eyes and they all spring to life.”

Norman Cornish original drawings are on view at Jesmond Dene House, Newcastle and online.

In the event of a sale, Maggie’s will receive 100% of the proceeds.
