J. G. Burnett and Mrs Burnett 1907

Douglas Strachan (1875–1950)

University of Aberdeen

Stained glass designer, decorator and painter, born in Aberdeen where he attended Robert Gordon’s College. He studied at RSA life schools, then widely in continental Europe. His interest in easel painting gradually gave way to more public decorative projects, such as work on the Scottish National War Memorial, Whittington window in the Guildhall and windows which Britain contributed to the Palace of Peace, The Hague.
