This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following is from Tamara McClellan, Naples, Florida

George Thompson Pritchard is my great uncle from my father's side.  My grandfather was his brother Sidney Pritchard.  I never met George Pritchard (nor my grandfather as he died before any of his grandchildren were born.)  My family does however have two painting from George Pritchard, one a watercolor of a New York City Street, and one of boats in New York harbor.

I have an old worn out and quite dark photo copy of a newspaper article written about him from the New Zealand Free Lance, August 1st 1951.  The article states that the painting entitled The Peaceful End of the Glorious Revolution was presented to the House of Representatives and is hanging in one of the lobbies.  It depicts William III signing the famous charter of English freedom in 1689.

It also states that he studied art at the Elam School of Art in Auckland, The Academy of Fine Arts in Melbourne, the South Kensington School of Art in London, The Julian Academy in Paris and with van der Heldt in Amsterdam. He presented a painting to the Priminister Rt. Hon. S.G, Holland.

He was also a writer.

I have no doubt that he was a character as my family has a powerful reputation for that ...I am SURE it runs strong in the blood!

This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Havelock, New Zealand on April 11, 1878, George Pritchard studied in Aukland at the Academy of Art, the Elam School of Art, and the Melbourne Academy of Fine Arts (1901).

Upon arriving in San Francisco in 1906 in the aftermath of the earthquake, he produced many paintings during his three-year stay.  A few years were then spent in Milwaukee before journeying on to Paris for further art study at Académie Julian, and at the Vanderheldt Academy in Amsterdam (1911-14).

During WWI he lived in Canada, New York City, and Richmond, Virginia.  Pritchard lectured and exhibited at colleges and universities throughout the South.  In 1935 he settled in southern California and had studios in Glendale and Santa Monica. He taught art at his studio, exhibited regularly with the Glendale and Santa Monica Art Associations, and painted many landscapes and seascapes.

He died in Reseda, California on Feb. 26, 1962.
