Joan Eardley (1921-1963) was one of Scotland’s most expressive twentieth century artists and is a firm favourite of Glasgow Women’s Library. To celebrate the centenary of Joan’s birth we’re thrilled to exhibit five striking artworks on loan from the University of Edinburgh Art Collection.

These five pieces vividly capture Joan’s attraction to the raw power and realism of people and place. Woman in St Marks (1949) was inspired by her time in Italy, while Girl and Baby and Back Street Bookie (1952) paint a picture of the people of Glasgow’s east end, where Joan became a familiar face, finding community and renting a studio. In contrast, January Flow Tide (1961) and Cornfield (1963) evoke the ever-changing land and seascapes of Catterline on the north-east coast, where Joan painted until her untimely death.
