Edwin James Douglas (14 Jul 1848, Edinburgh, Scotland - Dec
1914, Thakenham, Sussex) was an Animal and Portrait Painter.
Edwin Douglas flourished between 1869 and 1892. Born in
Edinburgh, he was the son of James Douglas, a noted portrait
painter, and exhibited his first work at the Royal Scottish Academy
at the age of only 17.
Douglas’s paintings were mainly of a sporting nature and he
attracted many notable patrons, including Sir Charles Tennant and
Queen Victoria. Queen Victoria purchased a picture of setters,
painted by Douglas, as a birthday present for King Edward VII.
