The Miner in Art

To accompany the exhibition by Norman Cornish at Kings Place Gallery, this talk will look at the imagery of miners.

This talk will look at the imagery of
miners, pits and mining communities in the paintings of such artists as Tom McGuinness, the Ashington Group and Van Gogh. It will also consider the less formal representations which have contributed to this history, with French Realist novels and Victorian social reform helping to mould
our views alongside contemporary newspaper illustrations and photographs. These images will be put into context alongside other representations of the working classes, and will include that troublesome issue which worried the Victorian establishment – what should a female miner wear.
