John Scott (1774 - 1827) was an English engraver and father of John R. Scott, also an engraver. Specialising in animals, his work was published in the Sporting Magazine and similar publications. Born in Newcastle, he worked in London with his brother William as a dealer and prime agent for Alexander Sutherland. His career came to an end in 1821 after he suffered a stroke.
Abraham Cooper (1787 - 1868) was a London-based painter, draughtsman and etcher of sporting, battle and historical scenes. He was elected member of the Royal Academy in 1817.
