Red haired girl by Joan Eardley poster print
42 x 29.6 cm poster print featuring the artwork Red Haired Girl by Scottish artist Joan Eardley. Paper size 42 x 29.6 cm. The image area measures 27 x 18 cm with a white border suitable for mounting and framing.
Depicted in this painting is a small girl with Red Hair, who likely lived near Eardley's studio in Glasgow. Eardley has depicted the children in a child-like manner, set against the debris of their everyday life. 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.
Joan Eardley was an English artist but spent most of her adult life as an artist in Glasgow and then Catterline. Her preference was for everyday subjects such as children or the sea and coastline.
