This biography from the Archives of AskART:
James Edward Allen, a lithographic artist, painter, and writer, was born in Louisiana in 1894, dying in New York in 1964. His subjects included wild-life and are represented in the Library of Congress Prints and Photographs Division, Washington, D.C. He was also a contributor to art magazines.

"Distress", one of his lithographs, depicts a railroad work crew struggling to put a derailed locomotive back on track during a storm. This latter work was published in "Collier's" magazine, September 17, 1938. It was exhibited in: "Life of the People: Realist Prints and Drawings from the Ben and Beatrice Goldstein Collection, 1912-1948", Library of Congress, 1999.

Allen was born in Louisiana, Missouri. He studied at the Art Institute of Chicago, and at Grand Central Art School where his teachers included Hans Hofmann, Joseph Pennell, Arshile Gorky, Harvey Dunn, and Nicolai Fechin.
