This biography from the Archives of AskART:
James Pryde (b. 1866 / d. 1941)

James Pryde was born on March 30, 1866 in Edinburgh, Scotland.  His great uncles were the famous Scottish artists Robert Scott Lauder and James Eckford Lauder.

Pryde studied in 1886 and 1887 at the Royal Scottish Academy.  He then studied at Académie Julian, in Paris, under William-Adolph Bouguereau for three months.  Pryde's early works during the years 1886 to 1890 included portraits in oil and charcoal, watercolor and pastels.  Soon after his schooling in Pairs, he settled in London c. 1890.

In 1899, Pryde married Marian Symons.  Pryde along with his sister's husband, William Nicholson, formed the Beggarstaff Brothers partnership until 1900.  The partnership explored woodcuts in an innovative paper design.  Attracting public attention, Pryde and Nicholson influenced the art of poster design.

Pryde toured Scotland in 1895 acting in small plays.  In 1901, he was an associate of the International Society and then president in 1921.  Held at the Baillie Gallery in 1911, Pryde had his first solo exhibition. He also exhibited at the Goupil Gallery, the Leicester Galleries, the Grosvenor Gallery, London Salon, New English Art Club, Royal Hibernian Academy, Royal Glasgow Institute of the Fine Arts and Royal Scottish Academy.  In 1934 he was elected an honorary member of the Royal Institute of Oil Painters.

Pryde died in Kensington, London on February 24, 1941. An Arts Council Memorial Exhibition toured Edinburgh, Brighton and London in 1949 with Pryde's works.
