Biography  
James Roy Hopkins


Born in Irwin, Ohio, James Hopkins served as Chairman of the Art Department at Ohio State University for 25 years and also served as dean of the Cincinnati Art Academy* for one year. He studied for two years with Frank Duveneck and later enrolled in the Academy Colarossi *in Paris but felt no training there surpassed what he had learned in Cincinnati.

He traveled around the world in 1904 and then lived in Paris until 1914, when he began his teaching career at the Art Academy of Cincinnati (1914-1920). He was known for a series of paintings of the Cumberland Mountain people of eastern Kentucky.
