33 Impassive Gardener by Drawings by Norman Neasom (1915 - 2010)

The Impassive Gardner

Pencil Drawing - Signed

Image Area: 11ins x 10ins

One of Norman's humourous subjects although the reason for the drawing is unknown. Some one who doesn't seem to react in the conversation of life can be described as impassive

The drawing shows the 'Impassive Gardener' carrying on digging whilst the pilot climbing from his aeroplane looks on rather perplexed at the lack of attention his crash has caused

This small drawing is very detailed and shows all the structural spars in the wings where the canvas has been torn away, the horse in the field charging away from the incident and the pilot's face has a scornful look as though it wasn't his fault

Unfortunately as with many of Norman's compositions, we will never know and can only surmise the reason for the work
