(b. 1734, d. 1818)

Miniature Painter

From A Dictionary of Irish Artists 1913

Was born in London in 1734, the third son of Robert Cotes, and brother of Francis Cotes (q.v.). He was brought up by his father for the medical profession, but his brother's success as a painter led him to turn to art as a profession. He painted crayons and miniatures with much success, and exhibited at the Society of Artists and the Royal Academy from 1760 to 1789. A few years before his death he retired and took up his residence in Paradise Row, Chelsea, where he died on 7th March, 1818.
