Architect and landscape painter, born in Prestbury, Gloucestershire, near Cheltenham where he was articled to a firm of architects. After practising and working as a correspondent in South Africa James joined the department of architecture at London University, 1903–8, working with Edwin Lutyens. He was almost 50 before he began serious painting, studying at Cheltenham and Chelsea Schools of Art. His first work shown at RA, where he appeared for just over 30 years from 1911, was principally architectural designs. Also showed NEAC and Goupil Gallery. Tate Gallery has his Winter on the Windrush, depicting a scene not far from his home in Gloucestershire at Stow-on-the-Wold.
