This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Henry George Glyde was born in Luton England in 1906 and trained in art at the Brassey Institute of Arts and Sciences, Hastings, the Royal College of Art, and in Italy, France and Belgium, where he devoted his studies to 15th Century composition.  He later instructed at the Croydon School of Arts and Crafts; The Borough Polytechnic; and the High Wycome School of Art.

He arrived in Canada in 1935 to teach at the Provincial Institute of Technology and Art in Calgary (now the Alberta College of Art and Design). In 1946 he began the Art Department at the University of Alberta (UofA) in Edmonton. Until his retirement in 1966, his career was closely tied to the development of art and the growth of art organizations in Alberta. He also taught for many years through the Extension Dept. of the U of A, which enabled him to teach in a variety of places across Alberta, such as Medicine Hat, Vegreville and Peace River. He was Head of the Painting Division at the Banff School of Fine Arts.

In 1943, Glyde and A.Y. Jackson were commissioned by the National Gallery of Canada to paint the construction of the Alaska Highway. H.G Glyde was a member of the Canadian Society of Graphic Arts, the Alberta Society of Artists (President 1945), The Federation of Canadian Artists (National President 1954), and the Canadian Art Council. In 1949 he was elected to the Royal Canadian Academy.

He continued to paint and find inspiration from the landscape in Victoria, British Columbia, his retirement home. H.G. Glyde died in 1998.

Biography from Glenbow Museum:
Throughout his long career as an artist and teacher in Calgary, Banff, and Edmonton, English born and educated Henry G. Glyde was a key player in the development of art in Alberta over a 30-year period starting in 1935.  In his practice and teaching, Glyde promoted the development of a distinctive view of Western Canada based on direct observation and interaction with the landscape and its people.

Following a major retrospective exhibition at the Glenbow Museum in 1987, the estate of H.G. Glyde donated a collection of 573 works to Glenbow in 1998, representing the enormous legacy of the artist's work in this region.  The collection illustrates different periods during his career where he experimented with a variety of media and styles, and demonstrates his strong technical drawing abilities.  It also includes several works by his students, emphasising his impact as a teacher in the early professional arts community.  With the addition of this donation, Glenbow Museum has 820 works by Glyde making it the most important centre in Canada for the research of Glyde's life and work.
