Sydney d'Horne Shepherd was a painter, printmaker and teacher known as 'Toby'. He studied at Dundee School of Art from 1924-6 and at Glasgow School of Art from 1926-30 studying under Maurice Greiffenhagen. In 1927 Shepherd was awarded a travelling scholarship and soon after became Assistant Art Teacher at Glasgow School of Art 1930-32. He ventured to London in 1933 to undertake portrait commissions having held his first solo exhibition the previous year in his native Dundee. In London he taught at Shoreditch Training College from 1937 until he joined the National Fire Service in 1941, returning to Shoreditch after the cessation of World War II. He remained there until 1954 thereafter teaching on a part-time basis at Ealing School of Art, St. Martin's School of Art and the Sir John Cass School of Art. His group exhibitions included Royal Scottish Academy, Royal Glasgow Institute of the Fine Arts, Royal Society of British Artists, Royal Institute of Oil Painters, National Society of Painters, Sculptors & Printmakers and the Victoria & Albert Museum. Examples of his work are in the collections of Dundee Art Galleries and Museums, SAC and the Victoria & Albert Museum. He was married to artist Helen Hale. The 'd apostrophe' before his surname appears to have been an affectation as it is not recorded on his birth certificate.
