Book Description 1st edit., David Leathers Publishing, 2011. New set in dustwrappers contained in matching cloth slipcase, 2011. Hardcover. Condition: As New. Over 650 colour illus., catalogues of pictures, portraits, lithographs and prints, appendices; 1,000pp. 4to orig. blue cloth, The first major study of England's foremost cattle painter.Cooper's reputation has suffered because of the numbers of copies, fakes, and lesser-quality works produced in extreme old age, which have been taken to be representative of his ability. He was not a stock painter producing portraits of single animals for their owners. His pictures, except in rare exceptions, depict groups of animals carefully composed, in a manner inspired by the Dutch Old Masters, like Cuyp and Potter.Kenneth Westwood has put forward a body of evidence to show Cooper was the equal of the best Victorian landscape painters. His painting, as would be expected of a fine lithographer, was based on sound draughtsmanship. He made hundreds of sketches, which he did not sell, but used as an image library to construct his pictures. Apart from the familiar pictures of cattle and sheep in the Canterbury meadows, Cooper produced dramatic droving and snow scenes, and also created pictures like The Half-Past One O'Clock Charge at Waterloo, which were a marked contrast to his usual subjects.
