Joan Eardley

Sunset, Oil on board, Rugby Art Gallery and Museum, Rugby Borough Council ©Copyright of the Eardley Estate


Observing this evening sunset view, we admire Joan Eardley’s (1921- 1963) sustained relationship with the Scottish landscape. She was also well established in painting street children in Glasgow and fishing villages up and down the coastlines of Scotland. Once settled in Aberdeenshire and towards the end of her career, she often produced several artworks of the same view but with different light at varying times of the day.
