Francis Cotes, R.A.
(English, 1726 - 1770)

English portrait painter. He began as a specialist in pastel and never altogether gave up the medium, but in the 1760s he turned with great success to oils — for a few years he was the only serious rival to Gainsborough and Reynolds. Like them, he was a founder member of the Royal Academy.
