George Cooper


George Victor Cooper was a landscape and portrait painter, sculptor, lithographer, and cameo cutter. As early as 1835-36, he had moved from New Jersey to New York City and remained there until 1849, but eventually went west to California.

By 1851, Cooper returned to New York City and worked there until his death. In 1865 he painted a portrait of Abraham Lincoln.
