William Gouw Ferguson (Scottish, 1632 / 33 - after 1695)
William Gouw Ferguson worked in the seventeenth century, a time when there were only a handful of native-born Scottish artists. He spent most of his career working abroad and his paintings are often compared to those by contemporary Dutch painters, undoubtedly because of the influential years he spent in Utrecht, The Hague and Amsterdam. He also travelled to Italy, but returned to London in the 1690s.
