An infant girl on a reclining couch, by William Douglas (1780 - 1832). A miniature painter, Douglas was apprenticed to Robert Scott the engraver at Edinburgh, John Burnet the engraver being one of his fellow-apprentices. He had numerous patrons, especially the Duke of Buccleuch and his family, and on 9 July 1817 he was appointed miniature-painter to Princess Charlotte and Prince Leopold of Saxe-Coburg. His miniatures were much esteemed for their tasteful and delicate execution. Some of these were exhibited by him at the Royal Academy in London in 1818, 1819, 1826, including a portrait of Lieutenant-general Sir John Hope.
