Cox, David, the elder (English landscapist, 1783-1859)

Note: Landscapist known for his vigorous style. In 1836 he began to paint with a broader style, on a rough Scottish wrapping paper; a similar paper was later marketed as 'Cox paper.' He wrote several treatises on landscape painting in watercolor; later he also worked in oil. Cox relied largely on teaching to support himself and his family. By 1808 he was taking pupils, and in 1813 the first of his drawing-manuals began coming out in parts. British landscapist known for his vigorous style.
