Northumbria University exhibition provides a behind-the-scenes look at the life and work of the celebrated County Durham painter.

Never-before-seen sketches, journals, letters and paintings by the artist Norman Cornish have gone on display as part of a unique exhibition, revealing more detail about his early work and artistic processes.

Cornish Revealed, currently on show at Northumbria University’s Gallery North, provides a fascinating insight into Cornish’s life and includes work which has never been displayed in public before.

The exhibition is the result of years of research by academics at Northumbria University – which has a strong link to the County Durham artist and his family and is home to the largest collection of his work anywhere in the world.
