Sir Norman Wisdom, by the Welsh portrait painter Wil Jones. Sir Norman’s screen persona is of the ‘clown’ but Wil Jones has captured an impression of the private man behind the public image. Sir Norman is most well-known as the accident-prone star of British comedies of the 1950s and 1960s and he made the Isle of Man his home.
