Robert MacBryde

Robert MacBryde (1913-1966) was a Maybole-born artist who was best known for his figurative paintings and still-life, as well as his work as a theatre set designer.

 

MacBryde's artistic career began when he gained entry into the Glasgow School of Art in 1932, after working for five years in a cement factory. At GSA, he met fellow Ayrshire-born artist Robert Colquhoun, with whom he embarked on a lifelong romantic and professional partnership. Together, MacBryde and Colquhoun were inseparable, and soon became known as 'The Two Roberts'.
