James Howie  -  1791-1858

Animal and Portrait Painter

Thank you to Cynthia Davis, Tampa, Florida, USA, for sending me a photograph of the James Howie painting above.  This is the only one of his paintings that I have seen.

Cynthia Davis wrote:

"The painting is of a horse in a box stall. It appears to be an Arabian horse and the quality of the painting is masterful. The RSA indicated in a letter to me that Howie exhibited around a dozen paintings in the RSA annual exhibitions between 1828 and 1834.

They were mostly of horses, dogs and other domestic animals. He was never a member of the academy and therefore his works must have passed the selection committee to be exhibited."

If you know of any other paintings by Howie, can you please e-mail me.

Thank you.

Note:  Do not confuse with the Portrait and Historical Painter, James Howe, who lived at 7 St James Square in 1820 and at George Street, Leith in the 1830s.
