Snow About 1958

Not on display

  • Scottish Art
Catterline on the east coast of Scotland became both home and primary subject for Joan Eardley during the last decade of her life. She depicted the village in all seasons and weathers, working outdoors as much as possible, which gave her a deep connection with the landscape she painted. Despite being covered with snow and under a grey sky, Eardley’s depiction of the village is enlivened by dashes of colour. Crops can be seen poking through the snow, a cottage is brightened by a red chimney, and in the distance an orange sun hangs above the horizon.
