Biography   Richard Cooper


Richard Cooper was included in one of the first waves of English artists who traveled to Italy in the 1770's and 80's.  Cooper trained under his father, the engraver Richard Cooper (1701-1764).  He also trained with J.P. Le Bas in Paris.

Cooper succeeded Alexander Cozens as drawing-master at Eton in 1768, before setting sail for Italy in 1771 with Thomas Merriman.  He visited Venice, Capua, Naples and Rome, and produced a series of tinted drawings around Rome which earned him the nickname 'the English Poussin'.
