Abstract

Little is known about the life and career of John Douglas, yet he was a well-respected and successful architect during the middle quarters of the eighteenth century. A cache ofDouglas' drawings came to light in the late 1980s and formed the basis of a 1989 exhibition, organised by lan Gow, entitled ‘John Douglas – William Adam's Rival?’.1 This paper takes Douglas out from William Adam's shadow and examines a decade of John Douglas' designs for country houses, from his first design for the Duke of Atholl in 1736, to the advent of the castellated style in 1746.
