Ralph Hyde (25 March 1939 – 5 June 2015[1]) was a curator of graphic arts at the Guildhall Library in London, a pre-eminent historian and writer on the subject of Panoramic painting. On his retirement he lived for a time in France but returned to London to continue as an active scholar in the field. In addition to having curated the Panoramania exhibition at the Barbican, he was the author, with Felix Barker, of the richly illustrated book London As It Might Have Been, which illustrates numerous planned, but never built, fanciful structures in London. He was a member of the International Panorama Council, and at the time of his death was compiling a Dictionary of Panoramists.
