Bowes Museum

Curators Dr Robert McManners and Gillian Wales deliver the first in a series of talks about this exhibition.
Why did coalminers paint the mines? Mining artists and professionals have been mesmerised by the visual impact of coalmining and have produced a body of work the like of which is found in no other industry.

This talk explores the potential reasons for this phenomenon, in relation to the artists featured in the exhibition.
