Miss Theresa Victoria Wylde

c1870 - 1949

Vancouver Studio Club and School of Art
Island Arts and Crafts Society


Miss T.V. Wylde exhibited in Vancouver, starting at least as early as 1909 with the November exhibition of the B.C. Society of Fine Arts. She also showed work that year in the Exhibition of Pictures held by the Vancouver Studio Club and School of Art.

Information on file at the Vancouver Art Gallery indicates that she also exhibited work with the Island Arts and Crafts Society between 1910 and 1921, with the Royal Academy in 1910, and that she was listed in the 1921 exhibition catalogue of the Island Arts and Crafts Society as an Instructor in art.

Wylde was a friend of Emily Carr, and created a life mask of Carr that was shown in Emily Carr: A Centennial Exhibition at the Vancouver Art Gallery in 1971. The work is illustrated in Emily Carr, 2006, on page 271, text page 272 (see reference below).

Alice Victoria May Wylde was born in Victoria, B.C. April 12, 1897, and may be related to the artist. No information is available for T.V. Wylde on B.C. Vital Statistics web site.

"I was delighted with a decorative figure subject in which Miss T.V. Wylde illustrates the lines from Keats:
       "She dwells with beauty -
       Beauty that must fade."

The color has quite a Rossetti or Burne-Jones quality."
      "Vancouver Studio Club Spring Exhibition"
      B.C. Saturday Sunset, July 3 1909
