1803   Born on 26 September 1803 in Canterbury where he worked as a coach painter and scenic artist
1824   Entered the Royal Academy Schools
1827 - 1830   he worked in Brussels, spending some time in the studio of animalier Eugène Verboekhoven.
1831   Following the political disturbance that led to Belgian independence in 1830, Cooper returned to London in 1831 to embark on a very long and successful career as an animalier
1845 - 1867   he was elected Associate Royal Academician in 1845 and Royal Academician in 1867. Such was the standard of Cooper’s work that he was commissioned by Queen Victoria and the Prince Consort to paint pictures of the Royal herd of pedigree Jersey cows.
1902   Cooper was, like many other artists of the time, a tremendously hard worker, and despite his early struggles ultimately became financially very successful. He died in Canterbury on 7th February 1902.
1833 - 1902   266 of his paintings were shown at the Royal Academy (to this day a record for an exhibitor)
1833 - 1859   He exhibited at the British Institution
