The Soldier’s Return (1900)

The Soldier’s Return (1900). Marcus Stone R.A. (British, 1840-1921). Oil on canvas.

The woman sits isolated; her black dress conjures up a sense of potential mourning. She is surrounded by symbols of the passing of time; the sundial, a book, material and a sewing box, all presumably to keep her mind occupied while her soldier lover is at war. These distractions have ultimately failed however as she holds a letter close to her heart. The soldier is directed to her in a conspiratorial fashion.

Rest Time in the Life Class (1923). Dorothy Johnstone

Rest Time in the Life Class (1923). Dorothy Johnstone (Scottish, 1892-1980). Oil on canvas. City of Edinburgh Council.

A rare depiction of life at the Edinburgh College of Art, in which the artist - the teacher herself - appears in the background, touching up her work. At 16, Johnstone enrolled as a student at the ECA. She took the Life Class with Ernest Stephen Lumsden where she revealed her talents at informal portraiture. In 1914 she became a member of the staff at the ECA.
