Biography   George Cope


Best known for "trompe l'oeil" or highly realistic still life painting, especially hanging game, George Cope spent most of his life around the Brandywine River Valley in West Chester, Pennsylvania, although in the 1870s he traveled for four years to the Far West including the Pacific Coast and the Plains.  Titles of his work included A Spur of the Sierra Nevada Mountains and Falls of the Turnchuck River, Washington Territory.
