Harry Robert Douglas was a portrait painter, born in Edinburgh who studied under Noel Paton (1821-1901).

In the mid-1880’s he left Scotland to begin business as a professional portrait painter in Belfast. By 1888 he was a member of the Belfast Ramblers' Sketching Club and was also on the committee of the Belfast Art Society.

Only an occasional exhibitor he did show at the Royal Hibernian Academy and Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool and a portrait of local civic dignitary and philanthropist Sir Robert Meyer, (1879-1985) was exhibited at the Ulster Museum in 1927 and is now in the collection of the Belfast City Hall. The Ulster Museum and Art Gallery also have various portraits as does the Medical Department of the Queen’s University.

His death was recorded in Belfast Mental Hospital.
