Additional Information about the Artist

The eldest son of John Sell Cotman, Miles Edmund trained with his father and became his assistant, both when Cotman senior set up his own School of Drawing in Norwich in 1824, and a decade later when he was appointed as drawing master at Kingís College School, London.

Miles Edmund succeeded to the post after his father’s death. He retired in 1854 through ill health and returned to Norfolk.

Principally a watercolourist, Miles Edmund Cotman exhibited paintings at the Norwich Society of Artists from the age of thirteen. He also produced some oils and a number of prints, both etchings and lithographs, sometimes based on his fatherís drawings or the sketches of his fatherís friend, William Henry Harriott.

His only dated plate was etched in 1832. His etchings from probably the later 1830ís had an emphasis towards shipping in river or coastal views.
