JAMES BARTHOLOMEW RSMA
Contemporary British seascape, landscape and animal painter
“I am fascinated by the interplay between a subject and light and how changing weather can alter the essence of something so completely.”
Since 1992, James has worked as a contemporary landscape and seascape painter. He has a strong reputation within the British contemporary art market and his recognisable, ‘loose and energetic’ style has gained widespread acclaim. Strong light and colour are often central to James’ paintings and dynamic viewpoints are a feature in many.

The most wonderful watercolours and with ease the best framing I've ever seen. Impeccable quality. James is an amazing artist who absolutely nails the light in places like Venice and Cornwall. I would highly recommend a visit to the gallery as you are always welcomed warmly.
I've been a big fan of James' work for years. His paintings capture light and movement so skilfully and make me want to visit all the places he has captured! Having worked with James recently creating a video for his website, I can say that he's a lovely guy too. Very humble and approachable.
Great showroom at the Mill. Fabulous picture framing too in the same building.
The prints arrived today and they're perfect. I knew they'd be beautiful, but seeing them in person is wonderful. It's impossible not to smile when looking at them! Thank you very much for making the transaction such a pleasant one.
Very happy with the picture and frame. It was a very easy and pleasant experience and a very efficient service.
The painting has arrived in perfect shape. The protective wrapping was most impressive. Thank you.
“Martindale Valley” has arrived safely - I’ve never seen a painting so well packed! - and my wife is absolutely thrilled with it. Thank you for the speedy despatch and please pass our thanks to James for this masterpiece. It’s now the fourth in our Bartholomew collection!
Just to let you know the painting arrived this afternoon and congratulations to David for the excellent packing which ensured a safe arrival. I am delighted with your work, which is exactly what I was looking for, and is a perfect example of your own style of artistry which I much admire. The painting is now hanging in pride of place in the dining room, and the colours, and the light oak frame which you recommended,match the decor exactly, and will provide much pleasure every time we sit down to dine. It has been a pleasure dealing with you.
Thank you to David for helping us with our purchase of the most beautiful print on canvas of Nanjiznel breaker 3. It arrived around 20 minutes ago and is already on the wall. It was excellently packaged. Thank you James for the original painting that this print was taken from. I love the sea and especially when it is full of big breakers. I am truly delighted.
...and the difficulties of finding the right reference material. I know I could pick easier subjects to paint! Animals and the sea form the bulk of my subjects and neither are predictable, rarely...
