Cox begun as a watercolour painter in London in 1804, and the following year he begun exhibiting at the Society of Painters in Watercolour, of which he would later become a member and regular exhibitor.  (...) His watercolours gained a remarkable boldness, gravity, and freedom of technique that set them apart from current fashion. In the last decades of his life he stood out as one of watercolours most original and distinctive practitioners.' Yale Centre for British Art
