This design relates to the mirror designed by Frances Macdonald circa 1896-97, The Honesty Mirror (Glasgow Museums and Art Galleries). The same honesty motifs and stylised female figures appear on this drawing, which was probably intended as a frieze decoration. A further portion of the drawing is in the collection of the Hunterian Art Gallery, donated by Mrs L A Dunderdale, who was Frances Macdonald's niece and the last occupant of Dunglass Castle, the Macdonald family home at Bowling, Dunbartonshire. It is possible that these two drawings were used as a frieze at Dunglass but their condition suggests that they were never permanently attached to any wall and they might, therefore, have been produced only for exhibition purposes and not for a specific location. This is perhaps the largest surviving drawing by any of The Four.
