This original print from a copper plate etching is by Robert Smith Forrest (1871-1943), an Edinburgh portrait painter and etcher. It is signed by him in pencil bottom right. It depicts one of the two longer panels of the bronze sculpture created in 1927 by Alice Meredith Williams for the Shrine of the National Scottish War Memorial, which is in Edinburgh Castle. Meredith Williams (1877-1934) was, by the time the War Memorial was at last built after much debate,one of the most celebrated monumental sculptors of her time. Her work on the friezes was a collaboration with her husband Morris, who had served in France during the First World War and had created the drawing for the frieze, some of them from life. The final work of the frieze, in five panels, commemorates sixty roles played by men and women (not forgetting horses, mules, dogs and pigeons) during the war. We assume that this etching, of which we have not seen another example, was created at around the same time as the bronzes. It was in a frame of the period, of which we have retained the backboard, which has the label of Mrs R Freedman, picture framer, Edinburgh.
