A spe­cially com­mis­sioned oil paint­ing on can­vas by our prin­ci­pal artist Liu Yingjie, in­ter­pret­ing “Scot­land For­ever!” by Lady But­ler. The paint­ing has been stretched and framed in Devon, Eng­land in a be­spoke hand made frame which has been wa­ter gilded and toned. Scot­land For­ever! de­picts the start of the charge of the Royal Scots Greys at the Bat­tle of Water­loo in 1815. The horses which dom­i­nate the pic­ture are the heavy grey mounts used by the reg­i­ment through­out its his­tory un­til mech­a­niza­tion. The orig­i­nal paint­ing was ex­hib­ited at the Egyp­tian Hall in Pic­cadilly in 1881. It is now housed at the Leeds Art Gallery, hav­ing been one of its ear­li­est ac­qui­si­tions, a gift from Colonel Thomas Wal­ter Hard­ing in 1888. The im­age was used dur­ing the First World War by both the Bri­tish and the Ger­mans in their pro­pa­ganda ma­te­rial.
