Biography from The Woodmere Art Museum:
Description of the Frederick James painting, A Colonial Wedding, 1883

In a crisp and highly detailed style, Frederick James depicts a newly married couple in a carriage hastily departing a throng of well wishers, having just emerged from church. 

James, who trained first at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and later under the famed French artist Jean Leon Gerome (1824-1904), was noted for his depictions of 18th-century America.  Here he has chosen a joyous subject matter, one that allows him to showcase his superior talents. Indeed, the wedding party, dressed to the nines, gives James ample opportunity to display his remarkable skill at replicating on canvas the exquisite satiny sheen of the participants’ finery.

His portraits of Benjamin Franklin and the Marquis de Lafayette hang in the Masonic Temple in Philadelphia.
