ABOUT THE ARTIST DAVID SCOUGALL
David Scougall (Scottish, active 1661 - 1677)
David Scougall may have studied with John Michael Wright, whose work he certainly copied, but very little is known about this portrait painter aside from the works signed by or attributed to him and a few surviving accounts. His clients included some of the most powerful people in Scotland, for example, Archibald Campbell, Marquis of Argyll, whose daughter Scougal also painted in 1654. His son or nephew, John Scougal, was also a portrait painter and some of his early works may have been confused with those of the older artist.
