Biography   Zarh Pritchard


Born in Madras, India on March 26, 1866.  At age ten Pritchard was sent to school in Scotland.  He began sketching underwater subjects there at an early age while playing in the Firth of Forth.  After  designing a gown for Sarah Bernhardt with an underwater theme, he began selling his works.  After a period in Tahiti, he arrived in San Francisco in 1906 attempting to sell his paintings.  Having lost 50 paintings in the earthquake and fire, he then lived in Pasadena for the next six years.  Pritchard went by the name Walter until 1909 and then changed his first name to Zarh.  In 1913 he built a home in San Diego County but traveled and exhibited extensively (New York, Japan, Paris, Brazil, London).&nbs
