James Dickson Innes


James Dickson Innes (27 February 1887 – 22 August 1914) was a Welsh landscape painter who worked in both oils and water-colours.

He was born in Llanelli, his father being a Scotsman who had found employment at the local tinplate works. He was educated at Christ College, Brecon, Carmarthen School of Art, and the Slade School of Art. He was a member of the Camden Town Group.

In 1911 he spent some time painting with Augustus John in North Wales, but much of his work was done overseas, mainly in France and Spain, foreign travel having been prescribed after he was diagnosed with tuberculosis. He eventually died of the disease at a nursing home in Swanley, Kent.
