William Sidney Cooper (1854-1927)
Sheep by a Kent canal

Medium: Oil on canvas
Size without frame: 15.5" x 23.5"
Size including frame: 21.0" x 29.0"
SOLD

Sheep and lambs rest on the warmth of a canalside track. It is probably late spring, early May, as of the finely painted trees, the leaves of the ash are only beginning to unfurl. William Sidney Cooper moved to Herne Bay in Kent in 1890 and thereafter painted mainly in the surrounding countryside. But, thus far, we have been unable to locate where in Kent this red brick bridge and canal lock might be/have been. Signed and dated 1910, and very similar in style and colouration to Cooper's 1914 Herne Mill painting held by the Canterbury Museum and Galleries. Although Christopher Wood's 'Victorian Paintings' indicates he was not a relative, in fact Thomas Sidney Cooper was his Great-Uncle, with whom he studied at the latter's art school in Canterbury. William Sidney exhibited widely, including 13 exhibits at the Royal Academy.
