An Artist’s War
The art and letters of Morris & Alice Meredith Williams
Phyllida Shaw (The History Press, 2017)

“Visitors to Edinburgh Castle see the work of Morris and Alice Meredith Williams every day, and do so in their thousands. And yet both have been largely neglected as artists of the First World War. Phyllida Shaw has brought them into the light, and in doing so makes us rethink the relationship of war to art, and the role that art can play both in the conduct of war and in its memory. This is a wonderful volume: delightful and beautiful, but also poignant and heartfelt.” Hew Strachan (From his foreword to An Artist’s War. The art and letters of Morris & Alice Meredith Williams)
