Thomas Sidney Cooper was born in St Peter's Street in Canterbury, Kent and showed strong artistic inclinations as a child. At the age of twenty he travelled to London and was admitted as a student of the Royal Academy

He is mainly associated with pictures of cattle or sheep, a fact that earned him the epithet "Cow Cooper". He was elected an Associate of the Royal Academy (ARA) in 1845 and Royal Academician (RA) on 22 June 1867

The largest public collection of Cooper paintings is owned by Canterbury City Council and housed at the Beaney House of Art & Knowledge in Canterbury. Examples are also held by the Tate Gallery, London, and the Victoria & Albert Museum, London, and other public collections, mainly in Britain
