William Sidney Cooper was born in Canterbury, Kent in 1854. He was the great nephew of Thomas Sidney Cooper (1803-1902), the famous landscape painter. His talent for painting was recognised early on and he trained under his great uncle at the Canterbury Sidney Cooper School of Art. In 1871, he started exhibiting at the Royal Academy and Suffolk Street and later at the Royal Watercolour Society. Works at the RA include ‘Springtime, Isle of Wight’, ‘The Avon at Ringwood’ and ‘Twilight on the Thames’. He married Kate Kennett in 1882 and in 1890 they moved to Herne Bay. Like his great uncle, he painted sheep and cattle in landscapes, often set within the countryside of Herne Bay. As well as a talented artist, Cooper was also a musician and a keen golfer and involved himself with his local community. He died in 1927 aged 73 and is buried in Eddington Churchyard. His works are highly collectable and can be found amongst many private collections as well as museums and art galleries including: Maidstone Museum & Bentlif Art Gallery, Canterbury Museum, Bradford Museum, Ferens Art Gallery, Winchester Museum and Reading Museum.
The painting is housed in a new, English made gilt frame which is in excellent condition.
