Biography James Preston
Painter and illustrator, James Moore Preston was born in 1873. He studied with Thomas Anshutz at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, in Philadelphia. James Preston and his artist wife, Mary Wilson Preston, were both associated with Robert Henri and the Ashcan School of painters. James Preston was particularly close to William Glackens. Around 1910 or 1911, Henri included both Prestons, as well as George Bellows, in an exhibition of the Eight (Ashcan School) he arranged in New York City at the Union Club. Although he was connected with the artists of the Ashcan Group, he painted landscapes in the Post-Impressionist style with soft and subtle colors.
The Prestons also exhibited in the famous Armory Show, 1913, in New York City.
