James Brewton

James Edward Brewton (1930-1967)

He was born on Nov. 4, 1930, in Toledo, Ohio and died in Philadelphia at age 36, on May 11, 1967.  At the time of his death, Brewton was beginning to distinguish himself as one of Philadelphia's premier painters and printmakers.

While in his teens, Brewton studied drawing at the Toledo Museum of Art and painting with John Charvet. At 21, Brewton joined the Marines and served in Korea. He did surprisingly well, climbing to the rank of sergeant.  Combat changed him, however: He became a pacifist, protesting the Vietnam War and painting antiwar works. Brewton's health was wrecked, and he was increasingly plagued by the spinal problems that would lead to his suicide.
