About

James Stark (1794-1859) 'Sighting the deer' - A landscape with a huntsman stalking deer on a river bank Oil on canvas 14 x 18 in (35.6 x 45.7 cm) James Stark, was born at Norwich on 19 November and baptised at St Michael Coslany, Norwich on 30 November 1794, youngest son of Michael Stark (1748–1831), a Scottish-born dyer, and his wife Jane née Ivory. Educated at Norwich Grammar School, where one of his class-mates was John Berney Crome (1794-1842), and James was apprenticed for three years from 1811, to John Berney's father, landscape artist John Crome (1768-1821). James first exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1811 and in the same year he exhibited at the Norwich Society of Artists, of which he was elected a member in 1812. At the end of his apprenticeship in 1814, he moved to London and exhibited at the British Institution 1814–1818, winning a prize of £50 in 1818. In 1817 he became a student at the Royal Academy Schools and also studied at the British Institute with George Vincent (1796-1831), who shared his house. Ill health forced Stark to return to Norwich in 1819 when he devoted himself to painting the scenery around the city, executing a series of paintings of Norfolk rivers which were engraved and published in 1834. On 17 July 1821, he married at Thorpe, Norwich, Elizabeth Younge Dinmore (1797-1834) and in 1830 he again returned to settle in London, taking up residence in Chelsea where his wife was buried on 24 September 1834, their only son was Arthur James Stark [q.v.] was born in Chelsea. From about 1830, most of his pictures were shown at the Royal Academy, though he still continued to exhibit occasionally in other galleries including the British Institution; the Society of British Artists and two works at the Suffolk Fine Art Association Exhibition [q.v.] at Ipswich in 1850 'Landscape and Cattle' and 'Peter Boats on the Thames'. In 1839 he moved to Windsor but in 1849, returned to London in order to further his son's artistic education. Stark died at Mornington Place, Camden Town, London on 24 March 1859. In 1827 he undertook publication of a work on 'The Scenery of the Rivers of Norfolk', which was completed seven years later.
