  • A Glasgow-born painter, Brydall worked predominantly as a lithographer and engraver, and taught for many years at the Government School of Art, where his students included David Murray, John Lavery, James Paterson and E. A. Walton. He was a regular exhibitor at the Royal Glasgow Institute (1862-1907), and also showed work at the Royal Scottish Academy (1862-1887), as well as the Royal Academy (1906) and the RSW.
