Robert MacBryde (1913 – 1966) was a Scottishmarker still-life and figure painter and a theatre set designer.

MacBryde was born in Maybolemarker and worked in a factory for 5 years after leaving school. He studied art at Glasgow School of Artmarker from 1932 to 1937. There, he met Robert Colquhoun with whom he established a lifelong friendship and collaboration, the pair becoming known as "the two Roberts". MacBryde studied and travelled in Francemarker and Italymarker, assisted by scholarships, returning to Londonmarker in 1939. He shared studio space with Colquhoun, and the pair shared a house with John Minton and, from 1943, Jankel Adler. He held his first one-man show at the Lefevre Gallery in 1943.

Influenced by Graham Sutherland and John Piper, MacBryde became a well known painter of the Modernist school of art, known for his brightly coloured Cubist studies. His later work evolved into a darker, Expressionist range of still lifes and landscapes. In collaboration with Colquhoun, he created several set designs during and after the Second World War. These included sets for Gielgud's Macbeth, King Lear at Stratfordmarker and Massine's Scottish ballet Donald of the Burthens, produced by the Sadler's Wells Balletmarker at Covent Gardenmarker in 1951.

Robert MacBryde died in 1966 in Dublinmarker as a result of a street accident.
