Portfolio - The Miner & The Horse Part II The Battle of Orgreave

See item details below:


The Miner & The Horse Part II The Battle of Orgreave

107 x 71cm egg tempera on real gesso on cotton canvas 2010. I was researching mining and found many press photographs of a confrontation between the miners and the police at the Orgreave coking plant near Sheffield. This happened during the 1984 miners' strike during Margaret Thatcher's Government. The stance of the horses and police reminded me of the ‘Battle of San Romano’ by Paolo Uccello (1397-1475).
