Artist Biography:

A.C. Cooper (1890 - 1989) -Born in Reading in 1890, Albert Cooper was apprenticed as a printer at the age of fourteen. He also attended evening classes at the University College Reading, where he was introduced to graphic design and illustration. He worked for a number of local printing firms including Knill & Sons, and the Eastern Press. In 1922 he joined Harold Taylor at the Golden Cockerel Press, Waltham Saint Lawrence. Subsequently he worked closely with Robert Gibbings, who took over direction of the Golden Cockerel in 1924, until its sale to Christopher Sandford in 1933. Thereafter Cooper was no longer employed in the printing trade. At Waltham Cooper met the many prominent artists and writers associated with the press. During this period the Golden Cockerel became pre-eminent among English private presses, producing fine books often illustrated with wood-engravings. Cooper was himself an enthusiastic and prolific artist in his spare time, and Gibbings encouraged him to develop his own work, particularly wood engraving, for which he showed considerable talent. Cooper exhibited his work with the Society of Wood Engravers on at least four occasions between 1924 and 1928. Also in 1928 he was included in an exhibition at the Whitworth Art Gallery, Manchester, in the company of Gibbings, Eric Gill, Eric Ravilious, David Jones, and other artists associated with the Press, although the catalogue did not describe his prints individually in the way it did theirs. He sold work through the Redfern Gallery London, and elsewhere, and exhibited at local art shows where he was often a prize-winner. Throughout his life, frequently in the company of his wife Dorothy, he made numerous sketching trips throughout Britain and Ireland, and painted in watercolours and oils. Cooper moved to Ruscombe in 1924 but regularly cycled into Reading to attend evening classes at the University School of Art. He was an enthusiastic member of Reading Guild of Artists for many years and a founder member of the Twyford and Ruscombe Art Group. He remained at Ruscombe until his death in January 1989 at the age of ninety-eight. (Thank you University of Berkshire)
