Julia Hog Cooper (1839–84) was the daughter of Thomas Calvert Girtin (1801–74), son of the artist. Thomas Calvert Girtin died intestate in 1874, though Cooper received a number of works from him through her brother, George Wyndham Girtin (1836–1912), who administered the estate, securing a portion of the works by Girtin for each of his three sisters. Eleven works were included in Cooper’s posthumous sale at Castleton, Sherborne, not least the fine late watercolour An Upland Landscape, Identified as Storiths Heights, near Bolton Abbey (TG1686) (Exhibitions: Davis, Castleton, Sherborne, 2 December 1884, lot 55). Her daughter was Sabina Cooper (1878–1959). Sabina married her cousin, Thomas Girtin (1874–1960), the co-author of The Art of Thomas Girtin, and the book was dedicated to her (Girtin and Loshak, 1954).
