Yes, there were two Sidney Cooper artists--Thomas and William. Thomas was the great-uncle to William and they trained/painted together. Both artists share a similar style and interest (in terms of subject). It's likely that your painting was executed by Thomas, but there's a chance it was painted by William. A photograph of the signature would help in this case. The estimate provided is based on comparables sold at auction for Thomas Sidney Cooper. We provide an estimate range rather than a specific number.

Hope this helps,
