Biography
Henry Gibson Duguid was born in Edinburgh on 27 May 1805 . His parents were George Duguid, described as a Commission Agent (possibly a door to door salesman) and Elizabeth Corston.

Little reference can be found of him prior to the introduction of Statutory records. In the 1841 census he was living at 18 South Nelson Street in Edinburgh and his occupation was Teacher of Music. Between 1841 and his death in 1860 he resided at many different locations in Edinburgh and described himself variously as Teacher of Pianoforte, Teacher of Music and Drawing, Artist and Teacher of Music and finally Landscape Artist. He was unmarried and after he died of a serious illness was buried in Preston Street Burying Ground, Edinburgh in 1860.

He was a Member of the Edinburgh Society of Artists and in 1841 entered 8 paintings for the 4th Exhibition. Around this time Edinburgh was undergoing significant change and artists like Henry Duguid were painting old buildings to provide an important record for the future.

One of his paintings 'A View of Edinburgh from the Braid Hills' sold at Christies Scottish Auction Sale held in Edinburgh in 2003 for the sum of $6103. His work must be popular in the US, because at the time of writing (2018), another arthouse provides hand painted reproductions for $100 to $200.

He is a listed artist with The National Galleries of Scotland and his work is also displayed at the Dundee Art Galleries and the Stirling Smith Art Gallery.
