James Poole was a gifted painter of the Birmingham School of 19th century English landscape artists. A friend and contemporary of David Cox (1783-1859) and Thomas Creswick (1811-1869), Poole studied with the Barbers and Samuel Lines but unlike Creswick chose to remain in Birmingham rather than move to London. Poole’s disinterest in showing his pictures at the Royal Academy and the other major exhibitions never dented his popularity and financial success. Amongst the artist’s patrons were J.M.W. Turner’s great champion Joseph Gillott and the steel tycoon John Brown who commissioned numerous landscapes by Poole to adorn the walls of his palatial home Endcliffe Hall where they were greatly admired by the then Prime Minister Lord Palmerston.
