John McDougal was born in Liverpool in 1851. Before he was fourteen, he was working in a cotton merchants office, and it was while he was employed there that Mr W S Caine, a prominent Liverpool figure who was later to become Member of Parliament for Scarborough, noticed some of his sketches and took John to see John Finney, headmaster of the Liverpool Institute. John McDougal was persuaded to take up painting on a full time basis. He was a prolific water color artist and had his own studio in Liverpool. In 1900 he and his family moved to Cemaes Bay, Anglesey, Wales where he set up his studio and continued to paint until he lost his sight later in his life. He died in 1945 and is buried on Anglesey.

Many of his paintings were commissioned for private collections. Among his patrons was Lord Derby. Lord Derby bequeathed a painting to the Walker Art Gallery - this is still in held in the Gallery's collection together with three other paintings by John McDougal.

He exhibited at the Royal Academy, London; the Royal Society of Artists, Birmingham; Fine Arts Society; Grosvenor Galleries; Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool; Manchester City Art Gallery; Royal Society of British Artists; Royal Cambrian Society; Royal Institute of Painters in Wales; Royal Scottish Academy; Royal Scottish Society of Water Color Painters. He was also one of the artist commissioned to paint a small watercolor for Queen Mary's Dolls House which is held in Windsor Castle.

He painted for nearly eighty years. From an interview with John Mc Dougal printed in the Liverpool Daily Post Wednesday February 7th 1945 - John Mc Dougal stated " I am a very rapid worker and my pictures have run into many thousands. But the public have never seen some of my best works for a good many of my pictures have gone into private collections."

J GOULD FRS , HC RICHTER/W HART 19TH CENTURY LITHOGRAPHS OF BIRDS
A FINE PAIR OF FRAMED LITHOGRAPHS , HAND COLOURED WITH BEAUTIFUL DETAIL PALAEORNIS ROSA, LORIUS FLAVO PALLIATUS RESPECTIVELY. FROM A PRIVATE COLLECTION

John Gould FRS (/gu?ld/; 14 September 1804 3 February 1881[1]) was an English ornithologist and bird artist. He published a number of monographs on birds, illustrated by plates that he produced with the assistance of his wife, Elizabeth Gould, and several other artists including Edward Lear, Henry Constantine Richter, Joseph Wolf and William Matthew Hart. He has been considered the father of bird study in Australia and the Gould League in Australia is named after him. His identification of the birds now nicknamed "Darwin's finches" played a role in the inception of Darwin's theory of evolution by natural selection. Gould's work is referenced in Charles Darwin's book, On the Origin of Species.
