Norman Cornish was one of the North East’s leading 20th century British artists and his collection of sketchbooks was catalogued by his family in 2013. His son-in law, Art Historian Mike Thornton, shows how these sketches reveal the fascinating story and historical record behind his paintings of a bygone era. Chronicled throughout Cornish's lifetime, he believes they can help foster an even deeper bond and strengthening emotional attachment for the many people who enjoy the Spennymoor artist’s work today.
