Henry George Cogle (1875–1957) was a well-known painter and printmaker of landscapes, coastal scenes and still life. He was born in Plymouth and he studied art at Plymouth School of Art. He held several art teaching appointments, being an assistant at Belfast School of Art, then headmaster of Battersea Polytechnic School of Art until retirement in 1936. Cogle exhibited at the Royal Academy from 1912-53, Royal Hibernian Academy (five works in 1908), London Group, the Redfern Gallery, and he had a one-man show at Plymouth Museum and Art Gallery in 1948. His work is represented in the collections of the British Museum (by donation from the Contemporary Art Society) and The Box at Plymouth. After leaving London he lived at Newton Ferrers in Devon before settling in Torquay.
