M. Cooper-Brown Biography

M. Cooper-Brown




Despite a clear talent for printmaking, few records exist of the work of early 20th century artist M. Cooper-Brown, mostly from catalogues showing that they exhibited with the Institute of Oil Painters in Picadilly, London, and the Royal Academy of Arts (1904, 1905, and 1907). They were likely British as the only listing connected with them lists an address in Hampstead, London. Their work appears to be influenced by both Japanese and Eastern European styles, with delicate tonal qualities in their landscapes reminiscent of ukiyo-e woodcuts, but with heavier, fluid lines more in tune with Impressionist and Expressionist styles. 

The Annex Galleries is always interested in acquiring more information on the lives of accomplished artists whose work flew under the radar for reasons unknown. Should you have any information on M.
