James Humbert Craig

James  Humbert Craig (1877-1944) Born in Belfast he spent his youth at Ballyholme, Co.Down, where he was educated at a private school. In his boyhood he had always drawn and painted. 'Jimmy' spent some time in his fathers wholesale merchant tea business, but left and an unsettled period followed.

He was practically a self-taught artist as he failed to see the term through at the Belfast School of Art. The Glens of Antrim, Donegal and Connemara were favourite areas for painting.
