Abraham Cooper
Birth: 1787
Death: Dec. 24, 1868

Artist. Born in London, England, he was a expressive 19th Century painter known for his racehorse, sporting and military battle portraits. At the age of twenty-two he became a pupil of artist Benjamin Marhsall and in 1809, he was a contributing artist for "The Sporting Magazine". In 1813, he painted his first painting for the Duke of Portland who become one of his major patrons. In 1829, he produced a very successful painting entitled "The Shooting Party", after which he used this subject with frequency. Amongst his other noted patrons were the Prince Regent, Queen Adelaide and Queen Victoria. His first exhibited work was at the Royal Academy in 1812 and he was elected to the Royal Academy of Arts in 1819. His work is considered some of the finest art ever and still commands lucrative prices on the International action market. He died at age 81 in Greenwich, England. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
