Footnotes

  • PROVENANCE:
    With Hunter Simmonds Gallery, Dorset

    Mr. Norris Changes Trains refers to Christopher Isherwood's 1933 poem by the same title. In this tale Mr. Norris is a man of contradictions; lavish but heavily in debt, excessively polite but sexually deviant. In 1993 a portfolio version of the poem was produced with illustrations by Beryl Cook.
