Street Kids by Joan Eardley magnet


Fridge magnet featuring artwork Street Kids, c. 1949-1951, by Joan Eardley (1921-1963), part of the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art Collection 

Eardley repeatedly depicted the children who lived near her Townhead studio in Glasgow. Adult figures rarely appear in her work. Eardley loved the friendliness and community spirit of the area. She took photographs of street life and of children playing, but also worked from life drawings. The children would visit her studio as friends, to play with a box of toys she had, and she was then able to make sketches of them. Eardley's paintings were praised for their honest portrayal of working-class life in Glasgow.
