William Pratt was a prolific artist, painting a very wide variety of subjects. He was from Glasgow but spent several years in Crail. For two years (1892–1894) he devoted himself to painting the sea and erected a studio on the shore at Kilminning, Crail. He was a master at painting figures and was awarded a bronze medal for his painting, 'The Old Covenanter', in the jurors awards of the Edinburgh Exhibition in 1886.
