Eileen Cooper RA is an English contemporary painter and print-maker, who makes stylised paintings of women or couples, often featuring unexpected animals (particularly a tiger). She was born in Glossop, Derbyshire, studied at Goldsmiths College, London from 1971 to 1974 and the Royal College of Art, London from 1974 to 1977. Cooper was elected to the Royal Academy on 24 May 2001, and in 2011 she became the first woman to be elected Keeper at the Royal Academy.(HERE)
The figure of a woman is central to Eileen Cooper's imagery: heroine, goddess of myth, mother, lover. Her strong drawing with fluid simplified lines and colourful compositions make her work immediately recognisable. Her style invokes Picasso and Chagall as well as the Mughal miniatures she admires.

Instead I've chosen three of her paintings to include here:
