John Pemberton "Jack" Cowan (1920-2008)
Born in Bristol, Tennessee in 1920, Cowan studied art at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York, where Norman Rockwell was one of his instructors.
Cowan's favorite subjects as well as his favorite sports are quail hunting and fishing for redfish. All classic Cowan scenes are instantly recognizable as "real" by sportmen who have waded the flats and hunted the brush.
His paintings have appeared as cover art and illustrations in such magazines as Fortune, Life, Look, Esquire, Sports Afield, Outdoor Life, and other national publications.
John was selected as one of the top 12 contemporary outdoor artists in America in celebration of the 100th Anniversary of Sports Afield magazine. His impressive portfolio of over 80 limited edition prints contains some of the most collectible prints ever published.
