Eileen Cooper (b. 1953, UK) is a respected artist known for her strong and passionate commitment to figuration. From 2010-17 Cooper served as Keeper of the Royal Academy, one of only 4 officers selected from the 80 Royal Academicians, and with primary responsibility for the Royal Academy Schools, thereby becoming the first woman to be elected to this role since the RA began in 1768.
