Fred Farrell was a self-taught etcher and watercolourist, specializing in portraits and topographical subjects. Discharged from active service in November 1916 due to ill health, he was then attached as a war artist to the 15th, 16th and 17th Highland Light Infantry in Flanders and the 51st (Highland) Division in France. He also drew the heroic Home Front effort of women in Glasgow's munitions factories, shipyards and engineering works; these drawings are remarkable for their dynamism and energy, allied with an artist's sense of pattern and design. Farrell's powerful sketches and watercolours of the Front offer a landscape filtered through his personal experience and emotion. Battle scenes and strategic deliberations are reconstructed, informed by first-hand accounts. Many include portraits of serving soldiers. This book showcases in print for the first time these unique and vivid records of war.
