Biography  
James Tyler


A maritime painter and illustrator, who became very well known during his lifetime, James G. Tyler was born in Oswego, New York.  Underscoring his success and prominence is that fact that his signature appeared on at least 100 forged paintings. Later, at the height of his career, he successfully took legal action against forgers through the District Attorney of New York City.

His interest in marine subjects began early, as by age 15 he was showing fascination with the ocean and seagoing vessels.  He moved to New York City where, studying with A. Cary Smith, he took his only formal art lessons.  Tyler's signature painting became known for the emphasis on mood and impression rather than for detailed realism.  ...  Displaying 750 of 4156 characters.
