Children and chalked wall 3 by Joan Eardley coaster
Single melamine square coaster with the popular artwork Children and chalked wall 3 by Joan Eardley, in the Scottish National Gallery of Modern art, National Galleries of Scotland Collection
The two children depicted in this painting are from the Samson family, who lived near Eardley's studio in the Townhead area of Glasgow. They feature in many of her paintings. The stencilled lettering and fragments of collaged newspaper imitate graffiti; the silver and gold papers are probably sweet wrappers. Eardley has depicted the children in a child-like manner, set against the debris of their everyday life.
