We dashed across the country yesterday to catch the last day of the exhibition of Joan Eardley's work at The Scottish Gallery in Edinburgh.
Joan Eardley is one of my all time favourite artists.
Honest, passionate, compassionate and totally committed. Unflinching, unafraid of her materials, a wonderful draughtsman....I could go on, but her work speaks for itself.
I knew the Glasgow she depicts so well and find her work moves me deeply.
The exhibition was busy with others who had left it till the last day, and some who were visiting for the second or third time. The paintings and drawings were all for sale and will never again be shown together as almost all have sold. The catalogue was sold out.
I'm sorry to recommend it only when the show is over, but for high quality reproductions of all the works click on the thumbnails here.
