Elizabeth Thompson, 1846-1933, Scotland Forever!, c. 1881
Scotland Forever! is an 1881 oil painting by Lady Butler (also known as Elizabeth Thompson), an artist that specialised in painting battle and military scenes. It portrays the charge of the Royal Scots Greys at the battle of Waterloo. It is named after the battle cry of the soldiers, who were shouting "Now, my boys, Scotland forever!” as they attacked the enemy. More than a quarter of them died during the battle, and another quarter were left wounded. This painting is one of the most famous images of that historic battle. It was exhibited at the Egyptian Hall in Piccadilly the same year it was painted, and donated a few years later to Leeds Art Gallery.
