Joan Eardley

In her short working life, Joan Eardley (1921-1963) gained a huge reputation as both a portraitist and landscape painter.

The images she produced in the 1950s and 60s of Glaswegian children rank as one of the one of the most powerful and poignant evocations of childhood ever made by an artist.
