This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Known for "small intimate scenes of New York's coffee district" as well as landscape and portrait painting, James Careet was active in New Jersey and New York.  He remains lesser known as an artist but had a successful career as a coffee merchant in New York City. 

Carret was denied admission to the school of the National Academy of Design*, but painted with a group of Academy students known as the Country Sketch Group*, led by Van Dearing Perrine and Maurice Sterne.  They were 'plein-air' painters who roamed the countryside around Ridgefield, New Jersey, and also hung around together in a lower Broadway loft in New York City.  In 1901, the group, exhibited together at the Art Institute of Chicago.

Carret's painting style "was characterized by a mysterious quality of light, deep-colored palette, loose brushstroke and heavy impasto."  Touchstone Galleries and Babcock Gallery in New York represented his artwork.
