Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

The Irish artist and primitive landscape painter James Dixon was born on Tory Island, County Donegal, and aside from the occasional visit to the mainland, remained on the island all his life. He devoted himself to fishing and small farming.  He only started painting at the age of 72, after seeing a British painter - Derek Hill - at work on a landscape painting.  Hill encouraged Dixon and provided him with oils and other art materials, although Dixon made his own paintbrushes from donke (showing 500 of 1979 characters).
