Little Urchin

Artist / Maker: Julie Edwardson


Oil painting and mixed media on canvas.

This painting depicts a Pelham Puppet (Little Urchin) that appears to have been dropped and abandoned by a child. It is painted onto a canvas support that has been collaged with vintage tablecloth fabric. The embroidery of the tablecloth is still visible and has a slightly raised texture. The fabrics have been bonded together with melted wax and then painted over. The canvas shows evidence of previous use and overall creates a vintage, collaged, mixed media effect.

The painting is 455mm x 815mm framed size, the frame is 1cm wide.

This is a stand alone painting but can be paired with the Little Dutch Girl painting by the same artist.


This painting was a part of an exhibition at Yore Mill Craft Shop and Gallery called Childhood Memories throughout August 23. It forms a part of the collected works painted by Julie for this exhibition.

The artwork is framed in an unpainted, natural ayous wood trayframe.
