This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following is from a grand niece of the artist:

Fred Pye was born in Hebden Bridge Yorkshire, England on December 1 1882 and died September 29th 1964. He attended the Julian Academy and Colorossi Academy in Paris. Shortly after completing his work at the Academy he held an exhibition wherein the French Government purchased one of his paintings entitled Mer Agiteo. The receipt for the purchase is dated December 23rd 1926.

The painting was hung in the Luxembourg Museum for many years. It has since been lost either in the basement of the museum during renovation or is amongst the stolen artwork.

Fred and his wife Molly established a Scholarship at the academy. More info can be found on page 673 of the American Art Annual 1933-Vol XXX.
