This biography from the Archives of AskART:
John Coppin was born in Mitchell, Ontario. Settling in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, he became a prominent portrait painter, muralist, and illustrator. As Director of "AAA Motor News" magazine, he was noted for his covers of this publication that was the forerunner of "Michigan Living" magazine.

His portrait subjects included actor Sir Alec Guiness, artist Sadakichi Hartmann, General Motors President James M. Roche, automobile tycoon Henry Ford, and four Michigan governors. The Hartmann portrait is in the National Gallery in Washington and his mural, "Man and Transportation" is in the Detroit Public Library.

Coppin was educated at Stratford Collegiate Institute and the John Wicker School of Art in Detroit, and he also did study tours in Europe. He was a member of the American Federation of Artists and a fellow of International Institute of Arts and Letters.

Prizes include the Scarab Club Gold Medal in Detroit for three years, the Institute of Arts Popular Prize for four years, the Carl F. Clarke Award in 1953, and the Hartwig Prize in 1953.

In addition to museums, locations of his work include Michigan State Capitol Building in Lansing; Wittenberg University in Ohio; Detroit College of Law; University of Detroit; the National Historical Museum in Danneborg Castle in Frederiksberg, Denmark; Detroit Public Library; Detroit Historical Museum; Michigan Bar Association; the Shakespeare Theater in Ontario; and Van Wexel Hall in Sarasota, Florida.
