Oil painting, "Gentleman with Fowling Piece", with a dead quail and dog done in whites, reds, russets and browns, and signed on the front, "J.C. 1717", for J[ohn?] Cooper (c.1695-living 1754?). J. Copper may have been the son of Edward Cooper, a London art dealer and print publisher who died before 1725, who was described as London's foremost print sellet of that period; his portrait, after J. Vandevaart, was engraved by Peter Pelham (1697-1751). Edward Cooper had a son, John, whose name has been associated as a mezzotint engraver, painter and print publisher.
