Frank Cadogan Cowper (1877–1958, England)

Paintings 1

Frank Cadogan Cowper was an English painter and illustrator of portraits, historical and literary scenes, and can reasonably be described as the last of the Pre-Raphaelites.

His career began after the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood had broken up, and the core artists had largely abandoned the style, but despite a style that was seen as deeply regressive at the time, Cowper was able to produce several works of great inspiration. His style is indebted to Millais and Rossetti, and indeed, his finest works can be compared to models by the previous two artists. Additionally, his portraiture can at times recall Waterhouse, as with his painting The Patient Griselda.

Lady Mary Heveningham by Hans Holbein the Younger, c. 1532. Black and coloured chalks, white bodycolour, pen and ink, and brush and ink on pale pink prepared paper.

Rossetti Painting ‘Lovely Guggums.’ Douglas Percy Bliss (British, 1900-1984). Pencil, watercolour and bodycolour and scratching out on paper.

Rossetti sits hunched over an easel, drawing or painting Lizzie Siddal, known familiarly as ‘Guggums,’ the cutler’s daughter who inspired so much of his early work and whom he eventually, after a long and fraught engagement, married in 1860. On the far wall hangs one of the female half-lengths of which Rossetti painted so many from the late 1850s on.

A Royal Princess (1903). Archibald Wakley (British, 1873-1906). Pencil, watercolour and bodycolour heightened with gold.

Wakley’s inspiration for this sumptuous depiction of a Medieval Royal court was Christina Rossetti’s 1868 poem Mother Country, in which she imagines a heaven where Queen and handmaid will be equals, reflecting in the final verse on how life is but ‘a vain shadow’ of the new life that will begin after death. “But a vain shadow / If one considereth; / Vanity of vanities, / As the Preacher saith.”
