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."
