Biography  
Frederic Cozzens


A marine painter and illustrator for Harpers Weekly and other magazines, Frederic Cozzens was a resident of Livingston, Staten Island.  From 1864 to 1867, he studied at the Rensselaer Polytech Institute but did not complete the degree.

He exhibited with the Boston Art Club*, the Mystic Seaport Association, and the Brooklyn Art Association.

His best known works are a series of chromolithographs* of his watercolors that were reproduced as a portfolio for J.D.J. Kelley's American Yachts: Their Clubs and Races. He also illustrated books on yachting. 

After 1899, he spent most of his time on private watercolor commissions, primarily marine subjects.
