Since the rediscovery of Suzanne Cooper’s work began, several works that are, or may be, hers have come to light, including those below.
Travellers in the Pyrenees
This painting belongs to Jonathan Gooderham of Jonathan Grant Galleries, Auckland, New Zealand. He found it in the back of a painting by Frances Hodgkins that he purchased in the UK. It is unsigned, but having compared it wih Suzanne Cooper’s ‘Royal Albion’ in the Auckland Art Gallery he believes it is her work. He is particularly persuaded by the idiosyncratic drawing of the horses in the two pictures . (See also the horses in the wood-engraving ‘Brightlingsea’). Frances Hodgkins, like Suzanne Cooper, showed work at the Wertheim Gallery, and with the Society of Women Artists.
oil on board 10 x 12 inches
charcoal on paper 10 x 12 inches
This painting and the accompanying drawing belong to John and Lorna Harbottle, who purchased them from a sale of the collection of Lucy Wertheim. The picture is unsigned, but it seems likely that it is ‘The Birdcage’, exhibited by Suzanne Cooper at the Wertheim Gallery in 1936.
