Cooper Jnr, Richard (1740 - 1822)
The Thames 'from Richmond Hill' with Wick House, the home of Sir Joshua Reynolds Pencil, pen, brush and ink. c.1789. Signed and inscribed. Provenance: An album of drawings by Cooper Jnr, probably compiled by a family member late in the artist's life, or soon after his death. 7.75x12.5 inches. Framed: 17.5x21.75 inches.


Cooper Jnr was in Italy in the early 1770s. He made a series of aquatints of Roman views on his return, after which his subject matter was almost entirely British. From 1788, he taught drawing at Eton College and around the same time began instructing the Royal Princesses. Drawings of Windsor, Richmond and Kew begin to appear in his work from this date. This drawing may relate to the 'View of Richmond Hill, looking down the Thames' that he exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1789 (No.521).
