James Wilson Edwards was born in 1925 in Washington, D.C. He studied at the Art Students League in New York and the Academie Julian in Paris. He moved to Princeton, New Jersey where he befriended African American artists Rex Goreleigh and Hughie Lee-Smith (the latter a great influence on Edwards’ surrealist paintings). Edwards exhibited regularly at the Studio on Canal, Princeton, NJ in the early 1970s. Edwards died in 1991.
