The Test of Time is a new book celebrating the life and work of the Spennymoor artist Norman Cornish, which reveals some of the fascinating stories behind his pictures.

In two special events to mark the publication of the book, Norman’s son-in-law Mike Thornton will talk to writer Michael Chaplin exploring the stories, history and anecdotes behind the moments of County Durham life captured in Cornish’s acclaimed paintings. Drawing on the 50 years Mike spent in conversation with Norman, these events will celebrate the legacy of a great artist and provide insight and access to a slice of art history.
