(1903 - 1995)
“the foremost and best-known Lake District landscape painter of his age”

William Heaton Cooper was born in Coniston, the third son of accomplished landscape painter Alfred Heaton Cooper.  He studied at the Royal Academy School in London, exhibited at the Royal Academy, the Royal Society of British Artists and the Royal Institute, but his love was always for the Lake District, and during the 1920s he became an authority on the lore and landscape of the area.  His style of painting was always more impressionistic than his father's, and he used his knowledge of the mountains’ geology to produce spare and evocative depictions of the crags and fells.  His ability to capture the ever changing light of Lakeland created pictures that reflected his own deep spirituality and resulted in a body of work which continue to delight his many admirers today.
