    London, Roland Browse and Delbanco (as "Pat")
    Edinburgh, Aitken Dott & Son, Joan Eardley Exhibition, May 29-June 10, 1961 (as "Pat")

    Eardley first exhibited scenes of Glasgow life at the Parsons Gallery in London in 1954, where they received favourable reviews as social documents. Inspired by the rapidly-vanishing Townhead where her studio stood, at the corner of St James Road and McAslin Street, she responded to
    'this richness that Glasgow has - I hope it always will have - a living thing, intense quality' (F. Pearson, Joan Eardley, National Galleries of Scotland, 2007, pp.31-32).

    Pat Samson was a favourite model, along with her siblings Anne and Brian. They would often volunteer 'sittings', in return for sweets or a few coins, and Eardley used pastel as the ideal medium to capture their restless, squirming vitality in deft studies.
