John Douglas

 

 

 

 

 

 

John Douglas, (25th January 1813 Dollar, Clackmannan - 11 Mar 1893, Glasgow) was a Portrait Painter and Photographer in Ayrshire; and a Photographer (Portrait and Carte-de-Visite) and Artist in Glasgow.

The National Galleries of Scotland say: "It seems we do hold four cartes-de-visites by John Douglas, but as our collection of these objects is uncatalogued they would be very difficult to locate". (December 2006).

He was in business with some of his sons - one of whom Walter was also an Artist as well as being a Photographer. John also had businesses in Helensburgh.

Family

He was the son of Walter Douglas and Isabella Anderson.

On 6 Mar 1835 he married Mary Lorimer. They had 10 children.

He was a first cousin of James Douglas, born 1810 in  Kilmarnock - father of Edwin James Douglas, born 1848
