Joan Eardley, RSA
This biography of Joan Eardley is long overdue. First published 25 years after her death, it is the first full-scale biography of one of Scotland's finest painters. Joan Eardley died young, but in less than 20 years of unrelenting commitment, she developed her talent and vision in a way that remains virtually unparalleled North of the Border. Her subject came to be the innate energy of whatever she drew or painted, be it the life of Glasgow street urchins or the coastal landscape in Kincardineshire which increasingly captured her imagination.
