Pit Road with Colliery, Winter is one of a number of works by mining artist (‘pitman painter’) Norman Cornish (1919-2014) in Tennants’ Modern & Contemporary Art sale on October 12.

The three-mile Pit Road leading from Cornish’s home in Spennymoor to the Dean and Chapter Colliery at Ferryhill is one of his most familiar subjects – and a route he himself walked every day for over 33 years. The pastel on paper is signed and inscribed and was gifted to the vendor’s father by the artist.

Estimate £8000-12,000.
