Harold Copping
Birth: Aug. 25, 1863
Death: Jul. 1, 1932
City of Canterbury
Kent, England

Artist, Illustrator. He trained at the Royal Academy, London, before studying in Paris on a Landseer Scholarship. He became a successful book illustrator, working on "Pilgrim's Progress" (1903), "Grace Abounding" (1905) and "Little Women" (1912). He is best known for his work on biblical subjects. He visited Palestine to research his illustrations for the "The Copping Bible" (1910), which became a best-seller. The success of this book led to commissions for "A journalist in the Holy Land" (1911) and "The Bible Story Book" (1923). He also produced illustrations for magazines, including "Little Folks", "Pearson's Magazine" and "The Royal Magazine". Examples of his work can be seen in the Russell-Cotes Art Gallery and Museum, Bournemouth. (bio by: js)
