The Sidney Cooper Gallery is proud to present a selection of works by acclaimed painter John Copnall (1928-2007). Son of sculptor Bainbridge Copnall, John studied painting at the Sir John Cass College before enrolling at the Royal Academy in 1949. Later John became an influential lecturer and for many years taught at the Central School of Art & Design and at the Canterbury College of Art. During this time he continued to exhibit widely having solo shows at the ICA, Ikon gallery Birmingham  and De la Warr Pavillion and was elected to The London Group in 1989.

The gallery is open Tuesdays - Fridays 10.30am - 5pm, and Saturdays 11.30am - 5pm. The gallery is closed on Sundays and Mondays, and in between exhibitions.
