ESTATE ART

Frederic S. Cozzens

American

(1846 - 1928)

Born in Livingston, Staten Island, New York in 1846, marine painter and illustrator for Harpers Weekly, Frederic Cozzens became one of the era's better known sea painters recognized primarily for his early depictions of the fledgling New York Yacht Club racing events.  He was also noted for his portrayal of naval events and maneuvers. In his superior renderings of famous yachts, he was usually commissioned directly by the owners of the vessels. From 1864 to 1867, he studied at the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.

 

He also illustrated for publications such as The Daily Graphic, Yachts and Yachting, Our Navy and others. His best known works are a series of chromolithographs of his watercolors that were reproduced as a portfolio for J.D.J. Kelley's American Yachts: Their Clubs and Races. He also illustrated books on yachting.

 

Early in his career Cozzens became devoted to depicting the America's Cup races and various yachting competitions of the New York Yacht Club. A monograph on his work was published in 1982.

 

In his day, he had numerous successful exhibitions at the Boston Art Club, the Mystic Seaport Association, and the Brooklyn Art Association.
