When art lovers hear the name, Innes, they immediately bring to mind the work of the Philadelphia painter from the late 19th century, George Innes. His exquisitely rendered landscapes, portraits, and figures can be found in virtually every American art museum. The name Innes pops up in British art too, though not nearly as high nor as often. James Dickson Innes was a turn-of-the-(20th)-century artist born in 1887, who died from tuberculosis in 1914 at the age of twenty-seven. That would, of course, account for the fact neither he, nor his work, is particularly well-know, particularly outside of England. Yet for one so young, one so short-lived, James Dickson Innes left behind a significant body of work.

subject matter. It's not known if this was his home away from home or one
he encountered. Innes was equally adept at watercolors as oils.
