Biography

Welsh watercolorist, printmaker and poster designer Gerald Spencer Pryse took part in the 1928 Amsterdam Art competitions. In Los Angeles he received an Honorable Mention in the Art Competitions in the category Paintings, Drawings and Watercolors. The work was named Greyhound Course. Pryse was a soldier in World War I and later became a war artist. He studied in London and Paris, and was then a founding member of the journal The Neolith, and worked for the magazines Punch, the Strand Magazine and The Graphic. During the war, he also designed a number of posters including several published by Frank Pick for the Underground Electric Railway in London, as well as for the Labour Party, The British Red Cross, and for the Empire Marketing Board. One of his daughters, Tessa Spencer Pryse (* 1939), became a well-known landscape painter, against her father’s wishes.
