Biography from Cornish Colony Museum:
William Henry Hyde (1856-1943) was a painter of portraits and landscapes as well as being a popular illustrator for such magazines as Century, Harper's and Scribner's.  He studied painting in Paris with Gustave Boulanger and Jules-Joseph Lefebvre at the Academie Julian. 

He was a member of the Society of American Artists, a group founded in opposition to the more conservative National Academy of Design, although he became an Associate member of the Academy in 1900.  At the Louisiana Purchase Exposition at St. Louis in 1904, he exhibited a portrait of his wife.  He also exhibited at the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in San Francisco in 1915, where he showed a portrait entitled Vera, which may have been a picture of Mrs. William Beaman, a prominent woman with ties to Cornish, New Hampshire..

He exhibited at the Louisiana Purchase Exposition at St. Louis in 1904, the Panama-Pacific International Exposition at San Francisco in 1915, and the Century Club in New York in 1909.

At Century Club, he exhibited eighteen portraits, several of which had a connection with Cornish:  a portrait of Mrs. John Blair, whose husband directed a Masque of Ours;  one of Mrs. Winston Churchill, the wife of the novelist; one of Miss Sylvia Hyde, his daughter; one of Miss S. L. Potter his sister in law; and one of Frank H. Potter, Esq., his brother in law.  Other of his Cornish related paintings include landscapes of local scenes and of Ascutney Mountain.

Hyde's portraits and landscapes reflect his involvement in the Cornish Art Colony. William Henry Hyde summered in Cornish, New Hampshire beginning in 1905.  The Hyde family was active in the social life of the Cornish Colony, and both William Henry Hyde and his daughter, Sylvia, acted in local theater.
