Biography  
William Cotton


A painter, illustrator and cartoonist, William Cotton depicted portraits and figures and did magazine illustrations including for The New Yorker.  He was also a muralist and cartoonist, and his murals are in theatres in New York City as well as in the Hotel Gibson in Cincinnati, Ohio, and in Easton's Beach in Newport, Rhode Island.

Cotton was born in Stockton, New Jersey, and his birth date has been given as both 1880 and 1885, but likely is 1880 because that is what he listed in his entries in Who's Who in American Art of 1947 and 1953.

Exhibition venues included the National Academy of Design, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Pennsylvania Academy and the Corcoran Gallery.
