    In my opinion, he is a good painter, quite varied in themes. Me personally, I find that he is the best in the landscapes and in the real life scenes of Native Americans who, in his time, he has had opportunity to know directly. I find him less interesting in depictions of nudes classic. This, of course, is just my personal opinion.

    It is interesting that three paintings from my personal collection are pictured here. Also, I appreciate that his name is listed as Astley David Middleton Cooper, not as Astley David “Montegue” Cooper that some idiots think. He never used the name “Montegue”.

      Mr. Peterson, your search might shed light on it:

        That explains why the painting of Sophie Cooper is before it was cleaned. It looks much better now. Cooper was very close to his sister, and he painted the portrait of her shortly after she died. He kept the painting until his death in 1924, and then his wife gave it to one of Cooper’s cousins. I really appreciate your interest in paintings by Astley Cooper. Is it possible to send you pictures of some other paintings in my collection?
