James Gale Tyler
(1855 - 1931)
James Gale Tyler was active/lived in Connecticut, New York. James Tyler is known for sailboat and other marine painting, illustration.
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.
