An American nineteenth-century painter, Edmund Coates painted a large range of content ranging from landscapes and seascapes to portraits and historical content. He was born in England and spent most of his adult life in New York City, where he frequently exhibited work at the National Academy of Design. His paintings, which were influenced by the style of the Hudson River School, represented idealized images of the lakes and mountains of both the White Mountains of New Hampshire and the Hudson River Valley. Further, Coates painted romantic scenes of ancient Italian ruins. Coates' work has been shown in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Addison Gallery of American Art, the New York Historical Society, the Yale University Art Gallery, and the Shelbourne Museum.
