Studies of Horse & Cart and Tree by Norman Cornish

Norman Cornish – Behind the Scenes page 141

A horse and cart, ‘the rag and bone man,’ was a regular sight on the streets of Spennymoor and likewise much of the UK during the period chronicled by Norman Cornish.

He had an outstanding ability to quickly observe and record people in the most unlikely situations and the horses and carts seen in and around Spennymoor provide an excellent example. Sometimes they appear as subjects in their own right and on other occasions they are placed within street scenes as part of the natural inter-action between the subject and other people going about their daily lives at the same time.

Rapid sketches were sometimes later water-coloured as he developed his technique and approach.
