Welcome to the
Arthur Douglas

Arthur S. Douglas lived from 1860-1949. He was a first term student (#68) at the inception of the Rhode Island School of Design in October of 1878.

Douglas, while a full time student, also acted as an instructor to other pupils at the school. This collection shows the versatility of Douglas as an artist, working in oils, watercolors, and pastels.

The Rhode Island Historical Society has granted us the courtesy of including their rare and private collection of Arthur Douglas' ten etchings in book form entitled:

Woodland Rambles, Ten Etchings of Nooks and Corners in Some Old Rhode Island Farms

We hope you enjoy this on-line Fine Arts presentation. Please contact the Driscoll Agency if you have any artwork or additional information regarding Douglas.

A Providence exhibit of the collection is now being planned for 2008. If you are interested in joining us for this special event, please advise.
