BRITISH COLUMBIA ARTISTS  

Miss Theresa Victoria Wylde

June 30 1870 - March 21 1949

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


Miss T.V. Wylde was born in Victoria. Around 1892 she went to England to study art at the Kensington School of Art in London. She 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).

A baptism record is available for T.V. Wylde on B.C. Vital Statistics web site.

Wylde died in Kilmersdon, Somerset, England in 1949.

Clippings

"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."
