James Henry Dowd (1885-1956) was a painter, etcher, poster designer and illustrator, born in Sheffield. Well known during the 1930's for his finely drawn books of children and babies, Dowd came to public attention with ‘Important People’ and ‘People of Importance’. His career had begun as early as 1906 when he first contributed drawings to Punch an association which was to last until the late 1940’s.
Dowd eventually became the first film critic and cartoonist for that magazine. He also contributed cartoons and illustrations for The Graphic, Strand and Bystander and, as an exhibitor, showed several times at the RA, RSA, Walker Art Gallery and the Cooling Galleries.
