Sitter in 2 portraits
Artist of 2 portraits
Pryde was born in Edinburgh and studied at the Royal Scottish Academy Schools from 1886 to 1887. Living in London from 1890, Pryde and his brother-in-law William Nicholson set up a partnership as poster artists under the name 'The Beggarstaff Brothers'. As a painter, Pryde specialised in dark interiors and architectural fantasies. The majority of these works were done before 1925, though he did produce some designs for theatre sets later in life.
