What a great piece to add to your American art collection, by Louis Prang and after Astley David Middleton Cooper!Astley Cooper (1856 - 1924) as found on Askart Astley David Middleton Cooper was active/lived in California, Missouri. Astley Cooper is known for landscape, Indian life, still life. Biography from Mark Sublette Medicine Man Gallery ADM Cooper was a popular and respected northern California artist who specialized in Native American genre painting and other scenes of the vanishing west. Cooper was born in St. Louis, Missouri, to David Middleton Cooper, a prominent physician, and Fannie Clark O'Fallon, grand-niece of legendary explorer, William Clark. George Catlin, the early explorer/painter of Plains Indian life, was a family friend, and his paintings and stories probably inspired Cooper's life-long fascination with Native Americans. After studying art at Washington University, Cooper made his own explorations through western territories, living with Indians and recording his experiences in drawings and paintings.
He spent two years in Boulder, Colorado drawing for Frank Leslie's Illustrated Newspaper, and making easel paintings of Indian subjects and western landscapes. At age 24, Cooper moved to San Francisco and adopted the life of a bohemian artist, setting up his first studio in the city's Latin Quarter.
Cooper moved to San Jose, California in 1883, eventually building an elaborate studio in the Egyptian style. Throughout his career Cooper painted scenes of the frontier and Native life, especially Plains Indian encampments and buffalo hunts. He decried Federal policies toward the Indians and, like many artists of the time, he felt an urgency to capture the ways of a vanishing race. However, Cooper's paintings were by no means literal documents of specific people and places. They were highly romanticized generic images intended to elicit favorable emotions about the noble Indian.
Cooper heightened the romantic mood with dramatic shadows and heavy, dark atmospheric effects that often obscured the background (and sometimes the foreground) of the view, focusing attention on the carefully drawn subjects while downplaying their context. His technique was similar to tonalism, but most of his paintings cannot be classed as such because they are often full of movement and activity. In his later years, Cooper increasingly painted landscapes, allegories, and historical subjects. His brushwork loosened, and some of the allegorical paintings, in particular, have an impressionist quality.
It was said that he paid many bar bills with paintings of nude women, and many establishments in the area featured one or more of his canvases. He also was known as an exceptionally generous, polite and cultured man with an aristocratic bearing. Cooper was married for the first and only time in 1919 at age 62 to the daughter of a family friend who was 26 years his junior. History found on the meibohmfinearts website GREAT Site!
