William Cooper first exhibited at Heffer's Gallery, Cambridge, while an undergraduate at Corpus Christi College.
Following war service in India William Cooper embarked on a successful career as a schoolmaster at Sherborne, maintaining his artistic career and initially specialising in collage and mixed media. A series of London scenes from this period has been widely acclaimed and reproduced.
In 1973 he had his first solo show at the Drian Gallery, and was also elected to the Royal West of England Academy, Bristol. He was elected to the council in 1991 and served as Artist Chairman of the Academy from 1993 to 1998. Since retiring he paints full time, working in both oils and acrylic. The Cornish landscape and particularly the St. Ives school have been strong influences.
William Cooper has won various prizes in open competitions, exhibited widely in galleries, the RA and the RWA, including solo exhibitions at St. Johns, Smith Square, and the Bloomsbury Gallery in London. His work

As a crude rule of thumb, fine art images look best on our art paper and photographs look best on photo paper. However, the differences are subtle and the right paper for you often comes down to personal preference and style. Each paper produces great results and there isn't a "wrong" choice.
Created using our fine art paper, mini prints are museum-quality reproductions at smaller, more affordable sizes.
Our canvases use thick 400gsm artist-grade cotton canvas with a subtle textured finish, for consistent detail, clarity and precision.
All stretched and framed canvases are 38mm deep, and use a finger-jointed frame and wooden corner wedges to prevent warping and to ensure the canvas remains taut.
A high-quality print mounted onto the back of a 1" hand-polished acrylic block. Ideal for use on a desk, shelf or mantelpiece.
