Biography James Heseldin
Born in England, James Heseldin arrived in the United States just prior
to World War I. He used his artistic skills to support the war effort,
working as a camoufleur in World War I. When the war ended, Heseldin
served an apprentice in a New York architectural firm, and his
subsequent paintings reveal his skill as a master draftsman. His
watercolors depict New York monuments built at a triumphant moment in
our nation's economic and architectural history, serving as a beautiful
rendition of the city's grandeur. Heseldin eventually became an American
citizen, although he returned to England at the end of his life.
