British born artist H.G. Glyde was significant in the development of art in Alberta, working in Calgary, Banff and Edmonton for over 30 years, starting in 1935. He helped pioneer the first community art course in Alberta, and was a leading and influential art instructor. The Banff landscape was a familiar one to Glyde from his teaching at the Banff School of Fine Art from 1936 to 1967.
