British Painter James Seymour was born in London. His father was an art dealer, banker, goldsmith, and diamond merchant. Thanks to the resulting prosperity, the young Seymour could study art which he did at, among other places, the Virtuosi Club of St Luke. Seymour's passion for art was almost as great as his love of horses. He combined the two by going to the races, purchasing, breeding and painting horses. His paintings were very popular among prominent English Families of the time and later on also in Europe and America.
