Edward Algernon Stuart Douglas
fl. 1860 - 1918Little is known of the life of this very competent sporting painter. Between 1880 and 1892 he exhibited ten pictures at the RA, all of them hunting scenes, which were sent from an address in Barnes. He is said to have worked in conjunction with Ackermanns for many years, who published a set of four coursing scenes in 1887 engraved by C.R. Stock. Douglas frequently produced pictures in pairs or sets of four, and he sometimes worked in miniature; his larger works have the detailed and delicate finish of miniature work. Douglas worked in oil and watercolour, frequently on small canvases 8 x 12 ins, or 12 x 16 ins. and was one of the better artists of his period.
