Henry G. Duguid (Scottish, 1805 - 1860)
Duguid was primarily a painter of landscapes and buildings, working mainly in oil and watercolour. His dates of birth and death are unknown, but according to entries in the Edinburgh Annual Directory, he was a teacher of 'painting, drawing and pianoforte' at various addresses in the city between 1827 and 1860. Duguid's subject matter was largely confined to views of Edinburgh, and consequentially he produced an invaluable record of the city's appearance prior to its extensive remodelling over the subsequent decades. There was a heightened interest in recording the Old Town at this time as many of the streets were being swept away during road building and general social improvement.
