Here we have a Wooden Magnet depicting Crawhall's Girl on a Bicycle.

William Burrell collected more works by Glasgow Boy Joseph Crawhall than any other artist. These 23 paintings, mainly watercolour and gouache, on display at The Burrell allow us a more intimate glimpse of the man whom Whistler called "the truest artist of the Glasgow men".

This watercolour shows Crawhall's sister Beatrice (1866–1930) wearing a straw hat with a black band, a pink blouse with leg-of-mutton sleeves, white collar and cuffs and black tie, and a practical skirt or bloomers, on her bike with the family dachshund Fritz running alongside, ears flapping, earnestly attempting to keep up. The dog’s short legs and slow pace may well have been a family joke. The blur of spokes and dog legs in Girl on Bicycle gives the suggestion of speed and was no doubt also intended to poke fun at both sister and dog.
