George Pyne 1800-1884

Though overshadowed in his early career by the artistic achievements of his father and father-in-law, George Pyne came into his own as a precise, and sometimes intense, architectural draughtsman.

London-born George Pyne developed as an artist under the influence of his father, William Henry Pyne, and his father-in-law, John Varley, both of whom were founder members of the Society of Painters in Water Colours. He exhibited landscapes, particularly of Kent, at the Society of British Artists and the Society of Painters in Water Colours, becoming an associate member of the latter in 1827.
