Art should be judged ‘from all points: design, colour, rhythm, decoration,
technique and feeling’ (Ian Eadie quoted in J.Y.K. Kerr, Ian Eadie of Dundee, 2000, pp. 12–14).

This study for a mural was most likely intended as decoration for a bar,
probably undertaken during the artist’s last year as a student at Dundee
College of Art. A related watercolour, Comic Face (1936) is reproduced in
J.Y.K. Kerr’s biography of the artist, Ian Eadie of Dundee (p. 13). From 1947 to 1973 Eadie was one of Scotland’s most prolific muralists.
