The British artist James Sant was a portrait and genre painter who also worked as court painter for Queen Victoria. He was born in April 1820 in Croydon, a town just outside London, and studied with August Calcott and John Varley, among others. Calcott was a painter from Kensington, who became famous for his landscape paintings and sea views. John Varley, on the other hand, pursued two vocations, painting and astrology. Besides countless watercolours, he also wrote books on astrological research topics. James Sant was married and had a daughter.

Already at a young age James specialized in making portraits. At the age of 20, he took part with his paintings in his first major exhibition at the Royal Academy. The Royal Academy of Arts in London is still one of the most important art institutions in the country today. It was founded in 1768 by an association of artists and is dedicated to the education of young talents in the three fields of painting, sculpture and architecture. James Sant remained closely associated with the Royal Academy throughout his life and one day became a member of the school's advisory board himself. In addition to the exhibitions at his former college, he took part in many other exhibitions throughout England. He regularly visited the autumn exhibition in Liverpool, organised by the Liverpool Academy of Art. He also exhibited his paintings repeatedly in the well-known Walker Art Gallery. The National Gallery of the North, as it is also called, still exists today. It is located in the heart of Liverpool and accommodates one of the biggest art collections of England. Here Sant portraits were hung next to famous paintings and sculptures by other internationally known artists.

In 1872 the English royal family became aware of the portraits of James Sant. Employees of Queen Victoria contacted the painter. In the same year he began his work for the English royal house - he became court painter to Queen Victoria. An incredible honour, which also made the painter internationally famous. In 1889 he was invited to the World Exhibition in Paris. He was allowed to exhibit some of his paintings and was awarded the bronze medal. Another highlight of his unique career! When portrait painting became more and more out of fashion at the beginning of the 20th century, James often occupied himself with landscape painting. Even at an advanced age he still painted countless landscapes. Also with these paintings he participated very successfully in the exhibitions of the Royal Academy. The painter died in summer 1916 in his beloved hometown London. Today, many of his works are exhibited in museums of the English Kingdom - even in Sydney, Australia. © Meisterdrucke
