69 Gossips by Drawings by Norman Neasom (1915 - 2010)


Ink drawing - Signed and dated 1969

Image Area: 16ins x 20ins

A drawing showing Norman's humour. The Oxford says that 'gossip' is: "The casual or unconstrained conversation or reports about other people, typically involving details which are not confirmed as true"

Although this is not the origin of the meaning of Gossips it is clearly the interpretation that Norman suggests even to the state of one being an outcast through gossip.

The drawing is an amazing example of Norman's work. Each one of the characters, in the street, leaning from the windows or in the doorways has an identity. Quite possibly many of them are people that Norman knew and put into the drawing
