Sholto Johnstone Douglas

Sholto Johnstone Douglas ( 1871-1958) was born in Edinburgh and studied in Paris, Antwerp and at the Slade School of Fine Art in London. His works include the painting of pictures of "dazzle" ships during the first world war and fifty-two of these paintings are in the Imperial War Museum. He lived in France from 1926 to 1939 when he did some landscape work in the Provencal area so this work may stem from that time.
