Children and Chalked Wall 3 Joan Eardley A6 Address Book
A6 hardback address book with popular artwork Children and Chalked Wall 3 by Joan Eardley featured on the cover. Lined paper with A - Z entries, handy if your mobile phone contacts disappear.
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.
