This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Malden, Massachusetts, Darius Cobb was one of the most celebrated figures in Boston during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. He was a painter of society portraits, landscape, historical costumes as well as a lithographer, and art critic.

He was the twin brother of Cyrus Cobb and often collaborated with his brother on large historical and religious paintings. Both Cobb brothers spent the greater part of their careers in Boston. His work has not received much attention since his death in 1919, but in the 1950s interest in him was revived with the discovery of a chromolithograph of a trompe l'oeil work, Dipper Missing, by him that shows a batter cap, canteen, and knapsack hanging against a door.
