Joan Eardley RSA

By |2019-05-12T13:44:37+00:00November 23rd, 2014|Scottish Art|0 Comments

Joan Kathleen Harding Eardley was born near Warnham, Sussex in 1921 the daughter of dairy farmers. Her younger sister, Patricia,  was born in 1922 and died in 2013. Their father had been  wounded in a gas attack in WW1 and subsequently suffered a mental breakdown and when Joan was nine he took his own life. In 1939 Joan’s mother, who was Scottish, moved with the two girls to Glasgow and in 1940 Joan enrolled at the Glasgow School of Art where she studied under Hugh Adam Crawford. In 1943 she was awarded a diploma in Drawing and Painting, and won the Sir James Guthrie Prize for Portraiture. After spending some time at Hospitalfield Art School studying under James Cowie she travelled on a scholarship to France and Italy. Joan Eardley set up a studio in Glasgow near the deprived Townhead area, and she became well known for her sympathetic, but not sentimental, highly individual drawings and paintings of poor city children who were often seen playing in the streets in ragged clothes. See illustration: “Boy in a brown Jersey”. In the early 1950s [...]

PAT DOUTHWAITE “High Priestess of the Grotesque in British Art”

By |2019-05-12T13:44:41+00:00November 22nd, 2014|Scottish Art|0 Comments

The first time I saw a work by Pat Douthwaite was at the Scottish Gallery of Modern Art in the early 1990s. The large oil picture was “Death of Amy Johnson” part of a series of paintings based on the life of the pioneer pilot Amy Johnson, now in the collection at National Galleries Scotland. Pat Douthwaite was born on July 28 1934 in Glasgow where at the age of 13 she started studying mime, movement and modern dance with Margaret Morris, the celebrated British dancer and choreographer. She showed some of her pictures to Morris’s husband, Scottish Colourist JD Fergusson who recognised a formidable talent, although he dissuaded her from going to art school. Margaret Morris and JD Fergusson were the most important influences of Douthwaite’s youth. Aged 24 she moved to East Anglia where she lived among a group of artists including Scots expatriates Robert Colquhoun and Robert McBride, and William Crozier who introduced her to the distinguished artist and illustrator Paul Hogarth (1917-2001). Pat and Paul married in 1963 and for the next few years lived in [...]

John Lowrie Morrison, who sings himself as Jolomo, lives and works on the west coast of Scotland. He paints in the expressionist style and his shows have been sell-outs, attracting an international following and in demand from individual collectors and corporations alike. In a Forward in the catalogue for  the exhibition Susan Mansfield, arts writer, says “For centuries, artists have been drawn to Venice: Turner, Monet and Whistler all immortalised the city. Today, La Serenissima continues to cast her spell over people who paint, with her labyrinth of ancient street and canals, dramatic sunrises and sunsets over the lagoon and the mesmeric play of [...]
