James Gozzard

 

Artist Biography:

James Gozzard was born in 1888 and is known as a painter and illustrator in both oil and watercolour, principally of landscapes of the English countryside. He was born in Lichfield, Staffordshire, and usually signed his work "J W Gozzard" (his middle name was Walter). He became a prolific illustrator and his work was reproduced in a variety of formats, including postcards and art prints by Rosenstiel’s. Many of his paintings were published as prints, both in black-and-white and in colour, particularly in the years up until the First World War. Gozzard also painted under the pseudonym "F Arnold" and the career he established as a published artist brought him some considerable success, partly as a result of his very precise and careful style, which made his work suitable for publishing in the days before advanced machinery and technology made almost any kind of reproduction possible. Gozzard’s name today survives principally on the strength of his rural landscapes and moonlit scenes. He died in 1950.
