About the Artist: Tarr was born in Swansea. He studied at
the Royal College of Art 1925-29 and lived
at High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire (England)
in the 1930s, painting landscapes and figure
subjects. He returned to Wales in about 1946,
where he was Principal of Cardiff School
of Art 1947-1970. His oil paintings have
sold at auction as high as 8,000 GBP.
Note: Thanks to James C. Tarr's son for the following
statement: "I have just found the shots
on your website of my father's two watercolours.
It may be of interest to you or your customers
to know their original location. It is a
farming village called Lahrbach in the German
Westerwald about 25 miles east of Bonn, where
we spent a summer holiday in 1954 - I still
have my mother's photograph album to confirm
this, and one of the photos shows the group
of buildings in your upper picture. Your
paintings may be dated 1957, but I am fairly
sure they would have been executed on site,
as that is the way my father liked to work."
