Harold Copping (1863 – 1932)
He studied at the Royal Academy Schools, winning a scholarship to Paris. After that he travelled both East and West but finally returned to settle in Kent at Sevenoaks. He was known mainly as an illustrator of everything from children’s books and works by Dickens to the Bible, working for a number of magazines as well, including The Girls’ Own Paper and The Windsor Magazine. As you might expect, Ezra pound was horrified by his work in April 1918 (NA 22.24:472).
