Cooper (née Lampert) exhibited under her maiden name until 1897 when she married fellow artist Colin Campbell Cooper. Known primarily as a watercolorist, her subjects included still lifes and scenes from her world travels which were extensive (Europe, Canada, India and throughout the US including Cragsmoor, NY in 1913 and California in the winter of 1915/16) and frequent. Following her graduation from Wells College, Cooper studied in NYC at the Art Students’ League under William Merritt Chase, with Harry Thompson in Paris and Jacob Kever in Amsterdam. Cooper was a member of the Philadelphia Watercolor Club, the New York Watercolor Club and the American Watercolor Society. She exhibited at the Paris Salons of 1887 and 1893, at the World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago (1893), the American Art Society in Philadelphia and the New York Women’s Art Club (1907) among others. She was also president of the Women’s Art Association of Canada in 1897 when she and her husband were exhibiting jointly at the Royal Canadian Academy. Cooper died in Pittsfield, Massachusetts in 1920. Sources: Falk, Peter, ed. "Who Was Who in American Art 1564-1975" Hughes, Edan Milton.
