"Pat Samson" c.1962

IU CRE EARDLEY, Joan; (Scottish; 1921-1963) In the 1950s Eardley took a studio at 204 St James Road, Townhead, Glasgow. From there she painted and drew the tenements and local people, particularly the children of the Samson family. Of the latter she said, 'For me they are Glasgow, this sort of richness which Glasgow has and I hope it always will have'.
