Brief Biography-James Howe Carse, the landscape painter, was the son of Alexander Carse, a painter of Scottish life. James had formal training at the Royal Scottish Academy in which his father was involved. He exhibited many of his paintings in England and won first prize at the Intercolonial Exhibition in Chicago in 1866.
When he travelled to New Zealand and Australia in 1869, he had engravings of his paintings published in news publications. He enjoyed considerable success in Australia, selling his works at high prices. He went on to help found the Art Society of New South Wales. Unfortunately, in his later years’ alcohol got the better of him, and he died from related diseases in 1900.
