Norman Cornish – Behind the Scenes page 73
In the 1960s there were thirty-seven pubs in Spennymoor with another thirty five in the immediate surrounding villages. Because Norman was a miner he was accepted as an artist rather than an outsider. The beer in his glass gave him the passport to be able to share, observe and record many character studies and informal bar scenes. He blended in.
A rare example of Norman utilising a coloured paper to enhance the composition.
