Frank Hyde (October 8, 1849 – 1937) was a British portrait and figure painter known for his Capri portraits of local model Rosina Ferrara and his friendship with John Singer Sargent.[1]

Hyde's career started during the Franco-Prussian War of 1870–71 as a war artist. Later he moved to Capri, where he discovered Ferrara and also introduced her to Sargent when he came to Capri in 1878. Sargent painted her at least twelve times during his year's stay in Anacapri.

In 2000, about 40 different paintings by Hyde were known.[2]
