Biography from The Artisfun Gallery:
Richard Jenkins Bryan was born in 1907 on John's Island near Charleston, South Carolina.  The descendant of an old and prominent South Carolina family, Richard Bryan spent much of his life painting in and around the Charleston area.  A graduate of The Citadel in 1931, Bryan studied charcoal drawing under the well-known artist Alfred Hutty and oil painting under Charleston painter Emma Gilchrist.  He also studied painting in a summer session at the Kansas City Art Institute, and, under Jack Leinhart on John's Island.

Bryan exhibited frequently around his home state, often winning prizes for his works. He received a first place at the Charleston County Fair as an amateur.  He won two prizes in the Professional Class, for a landscape and a still life, at the State Fair in Columbia, South Carolina in 1935.   His painting of John's Island (dated 1935) received second prize in that competition.  He also was awarded first prize it the Student Class for a landscape at the Missouri State Fair in 1936.

In 1938 he exhibited at the Connecticut Academy of Fine Arts. He also exhibited at the Third Annual Summer Exhibition by Artist Members of the Carolina Art Association where he was awarded the Waring Memorial Award for best South Carolina landscape in 1939.  Thomas Waring was the former president of the Carolina Art Association.

An illustrator as well, Bryan is credited with the drawings for the book The Early Ironwork of Charleston, which was published in 1941.

Richard Jenkins Bryan died in 1986 in Charleston, South Carolina.
