Children and chalked wall 3 by Joan Eardley greeting card
Single greeting card featuring the image Children and chalked wall 3 by Joan Eardley, from the collection of the National Galleries of Scotland.
Packaged with a white envelope in a clear cellophane sleeve.
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.
