Children and Chalked Wall 3 by Joan Eardley A5 hardback lined notebook
Smart A5 lined notebook with popular artwork Children and Chalked Wall 3 by Joan Eardley from the National Galleries of Scotland Collection featured on the cover.
This popular artwork features two children from the Samson family, who feature in many of Eardley’s works. They lived near Eardley's studio in the Townhead area of Glasgow. Eardley has depicted the children in a child-like manner, set against the debris of their everyday life. With fragments of collaged newspaper imitate graffiti; the silver and gold papers are probably sweet wrappers.
Joan Eardley born in England but spent most of her adult life as an artist in Glasgow and then Catterline, a small fishing village south of Aberdeen. Her preference was for everyday subjects such as children or the sea and coast line.
