About this artwork

This painting was exhibited in Edinburgh in April 1961, and judging by the title, ‘Harvest’, it would probably have been painted in the autumn of 1960. Eardley has added grit to the paint surface to give texture and movement to the work and the colours are expressive of the warm hues typical of autumnal crops.
