The Pier at South Shields  by Norman Cornish

Norman Cornish – Behind the Scenes page 169

The life and times of and in Spennymoor were the main subject of Norman’s interest during the 50s and 60s. However, occasionally, he ventured to the coast at South Shields and various parts of Tyneside.

The pier at South Shields was an obvious attraction, combining the interesting shape of the pier itself and the rail lines. The anglers watching and waiting after casting their lines were irresistible to Norman and the subject was a favourite which also offered a ‘different theatre of operations’.

His first painting of people fishing at South Shields appeared at the Stone Gallery exhibition of 1967, which was shortly after he became a professional artist.
