Children and Chalked Wall 3 by Joan Eardley A6 notebook
A6 Hardback notebook with then popular artwork Children and Chalked Wall 3 by Joan Eardley featured on the cover.
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.
Lined pages and grosgrain ribbon bookmark.
