James Edwin Meadows
1828-1888
James Edwin was a London artist who painted landscapes and a number of marine subjects. He was one of three sons who belonged to a painting family headed by James Meadows Snr., a highly esteemed marine artist. James Edwin exhibited twenty-six works at the Royal Academy between 1854 and 1872, the British Institute, Suffolk Street (fifty-five works) and various other venues. Meadows’ works are easily distinguishable by his conception of the British landscape with rolling pastures and quantities of rounded figures. Meadows’ strength is the simplicity and daintiness of his canvases always filled with luxurious greens and delicate blues, amounting to an image which is not only striking but also extremely restful. His style and natural observation, particularly in his treatment of foliage, trees and emotive people, display his love of open-air painting. His seascapes are also well painted, evoking the atmosphere of the changeable nature and vagaries of the sea. He painted scenes in Essex, Kent, Sussex, Surrey and the Isle of Wight.
