A Field of Oats
Joan Eardley first visited Catterline, a fishing village south of Aberdeen on the north-east coast of Scotland in 1951, and a few years later she moved to a cottage on the headland. The seascapes and landscapes which she painted there transcend locality to create universal statements about the force of the elements. This remote location is in sharp contrast to the main subject matter of the other group of paintings for which she is well known - the children of overcrowded Glasgow tenements.
