Pratt was a Virginia landscape artist who studied at the Washington School of Art and the Corcoran School of Art.
Pratt was also employed by the Corcoran Gallery from 1938 to 1955 - as a maintenance man (1938-44), acting superintendent (1944-45) and foreman (1945-55) - and so it is likely that he sat in on courses during those years.
Pratt had a solo exhibition at the Corcoran Gallery: Paintings by Samuel Pratt, on view from August 12 through September 3, 1945as well as exhibiting at the Corcoran Gallery biennials of 1945 and 1951.
