Frank Cadogan Cowper was an English painter and illustrator of portraits, historical and literary scenes, described as “The last of the Pre-Raphaelites”.
He worked in both watercolours and oils, and also worked as book illustrator - providing the illustrations for Sir Sidney Lee’s The Imperial Shakespeare.
As art fashion changed Cowper increasingly exhibited his portrait paintings but still continued to produce historical and literary works.
