Sir Arthur Stockdale Cope (1857-1940), Artist

Sitter in 7 portraits
Artist associated with 14 portraits
The son of Charles West Cope, a successful history and genre painter. Cope trained at Carey's Art School before moving to the Royal Academy schools. He went on to establish his own portrait practice, exhibiting 288 works at the Royal Academy and the Royal Society of Portrait Painters between 1876 and 1935. He combined this prolific output with a prestigious roll-call of sitters, ranging from Kings Edward VII, George V and Edward VIII, to Kaiser Willhelm II and the Archbishop of Canterbury. His high-profile works and successful style won him many honours: in 1900 he became a fellow of the Royal Society of Portrait Painters; in 1910 he was elected Royal Academician; and in 1917 he was knighted.
