Frank Hider was born in 1861. Censuses vary in his place of birth, citing Newington, London, Old Kent Road, London and Walworth, Middlesex. His father, George Hider, married Jane Cansick (1828-1871) on 29th October 1857 in Kennington, London and Jane Cansick was the artist's mother.
George married Henrietta Maria Mackie in 1871. In the 1881 census, when living in Croydon, Surrey, the surname was spelt as Heder. He married Laura Anna Hill in 1885 and they had several children, one of whom, Christopher George Hider, also studied art.
Frank Hider studied at Heatherleys Art School. He travelled through Britain painting his rural landscapes and coastal scenes in oils and watercolours. Hider also visited Italy and Belgium and although a prolific painter he rarely exhibited. He became part of the Burnham Beeches colony of painters in Buckinghamshire. His style was similar to that of S Y Johnson, although done in a broader stroke. Often his oils were inscribed with the title and location on the reverse. Typical titles were Off the Cornish Coast, Bringing in the Catch and Seagulls Haunt.
Paintings on public view include:
The Sister Rocks Alderney Society Museum

Splash Point Towner Gallery, Eastbourne
his work is sold regularly in Christies among other top auction houses.
The signature M C Hider is thought to be a pseudonym.
Hider lived for many years in Forest Gate, West Ham, Essex and died
there in 1933.
The beautiful gold gilt frame is original to the painting.
