Robert Langton Douglas
Douglas was born in Lavenham, and educated at New College, Oxford. He was for years a University Extension lecturer, and for a time was in holy orders in the Church of England.
From 1895 to 1900 he resided in Italy. While a chaplain there, he wrote a monograph on Fra Angelico in consultation with various scholars. He relinquished his church appointment in 1900 to become professor of Modern History and English Language and Literature at the University of Adelaide, then returned to Italy in 1901 where he wrote A History of Siena. He resigned from the University of Adelaide in 1902.
He lectured on art at the Royal Institution and the Society of Arts, was made dean of the faculty of arts in 1901, and contributed to many magazines and reviews.
At age 50, in 1914, Douglas enlisted in the British Army for World War I, and rose from private to staff captain and a position with the War Office in London. Douglas was awarded for his bravery in World War I.
In 1916 Douglas was appointed director of the National Gallery of Ireland but resigned in 1923 after a disagreement with its trustees.
He settled in New York City in 1940, writing text for the Duveen art galleries.
