James Webb (1835–1895) was a British artist specialising in marine views and landscapes. He exhibited in London at the Royal Academy and the British Institute between 1850 and 1888, and many of his works still hang in London in the collections of the Victoria and Albert Museum and the Tate Gallery. Examples of Webb’s work can be found across the UK in provincial galleries. Webb was a student of artist Clarkson Frederick Stanfield, who was a prominent British marine artist.
