Samuel Cooper

I previewed the Philip Mould gallery's loan exhibition Warts And All: The Portrait Miniatures of Samuel Cooper (1609-1672) last month (CLICK). It opened yesterday, and here's the lad himself: Samuel Cooper's Self-Portrait (1644). He looks a most personable young fellow. Additional news is that there will be two talks at the gallery. On 19 November at 6pm Dr Bendor Grosvenor and the curator Emma Rutherford will discuss Cooper's life, career and technical brilliance in Samuel Cooper: The Genius and the Wart. On 3 December at 6pm historian Dr Anna Keay will discuss Our most beloved son: Samuel Cooper and the portraiture of the Duke of Monmouth. Both talks are free, but you must book in advance.
