David James ( 1853 - 1904)
There are few artists able to portray the translucent quality of a breaking wave or convey the immense power of an ocean swell. David James was an artist who achieved considerable success and wealth as an exclusively maritime painter. He was active from 1872 painting seascapes and coastal scenes. His principal subject matter was the seas around the Cornish coast and the Scilly Isles, however he travelled widely.
