Synopsis: An illustrated account of the tarns of the Lake District. William Heaton Cooper (1903-1995) was an English impressionistic landscape artist who mostly used water colours and was renowned for his work depicting the Lake District. This work details a number of the tarns, small lakes in the mountains. He used his geological knowledge in his depictions, and was fascinated by the light of the Lake District. His father, Alfred Heaton Cooper, was also a landscape painter.
