This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Painter and sculptor Charles Brinton Cox, 1864-1905, was born in Philadelphia, dying young, in his early forties, of tuberculosis in Camden, New Jersey, where he lived. He sculpted animals, but emphasized historical works when he turned primarily to painting after 1890.

He exhibited at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, in 1890-1905; and Art Institute of Chicago, Illinois, 1896-97, 1901-1902, 1904. Cox studied with Thomas Eakins at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Philadelphia. He also studied at the Art Students League, in New York City.

Cox traveled frequently to paint in Texas, California, Oregon, California, and Mexico.

John and Deborah Powers, "Texas Painters, Sculptors, and Graphic Artists"

Biography from Crocker Art Museum Store:
Sculptor, painter. Born in Philadelphia, PA in 1864. Cox was studied with Thomas Eakins at the PAFA and at the ASL in NYC. Abandoning animal sculpture in 1890, he turned his talents to painting. Although based in the East, he made many western painting trips. His subject matter indicates travel in Oregon, Texas, Mexico, and California. Returning to his home in Camden, NJ from one of these trips, he died of tuberculosis in 1905 at age 41. His rare animal sculptures are said to have shown beauty and power.

Exh: PAFA, 1890-1905; American Art Society, Philadelphia (silver medal). Fid; Pacific Northwest, Stenzel, 1963, p. 8.
