George Cope was born in western Chester County, Pennsylvania, the son of Quaker parents. He taught himself to draw and briefly took painting lessons from the German immigrant artist Herman Herzog (1831-1932). Cope moved to Philadelphia in 1881 and specialized in painting still-life subjects. He returned to West Chester in 1883, earning a living as an art teacher and restorer. During the late 1880s he began to paint trompe l'oeil subjects---usually representing hunting gear or fishing tackle---that reflect the influence of the Philadelphia painter William Michael Harnett.
