'Children's Games'

A series of gouache/poster paint studies entitled 'children's games'.


These paintings by Gavin Alston, c. 1955-58, were studies for future projects. He returned to this subject matter in his mural for Kingsridge Secondary.

The boys playing conkers remind me of Joan Eardley's (1921 - 1963) work. Both artists were products of the Glasgow School of Art. At this time figurative composition was of central importance in the training at Glasgow School of Art.
