Joan Eardley Retrospective at the National Galleries of Scotland


 

National Galleries of ScotlandEdinburgh

6th November 2007 to 13th January 2008

 

On of the largest Joan Eardley exhibitions ever held, and it is also the first major exhibition of her work in nearly twenty years.

 

Born in Sussex in 1921, Eardley moved to Glasgow in 1940, studying at Glasgow School of Art. Her paintings of children playing in rundown Glasgow tenements, and her landscapes painted in and around the fishing village of Catterline on the north-east coast of Scotland, are among the most celebrated works in Scottish art. Her career was cut tragically short in 1963, when she died of cancer at the age of 42.
