Glyn Warren Philpot (5 October 1884 – 16 December 1937) was an English artist, best known for his portraits of contemporary figures such as Siegfried Sassoon and Vladimir Rosing.Philpot was born in Clapham London, but the family moved to Herne in Kent shortly afterwards. Although homosexual, Philpot was a practising Christian who converted to Roman Catholicism. Philpot studied at the Lambeth School of Art (now known as City and Guilds of London Art School) in 1900. He was elected to the Royal Academy in 1923. Some of his later work was considered controversial in its time because of the explicit sexual imagery, and this led to a loss of popularity which caused him financial hardship.Exhibitions have been held at The Tate Gallery (1938), The Ashmolean Museum, The National Portrait Gallery and Pallant House Gallery.He was a member of the International Society of Sculptors, Painters and Gravers.

James Pryde (1866–1941) was a British artist. A number of his paintings are in public collections, but there have been few exhibitions of his work. He is principally remembered as one of the Beggarstaffs, his artistic partnership with William Nicholson, and for the poster designs and other graphic work that they made between 1893 and 1899, which had a powerful and far-reaching influence on graphic design for many years.
