Jack Banham Coggins was an extremely successful artist with a wide-ranging talent, who is best known in the United States of America for his oil paintings of predominantly marine subjects. During World War II, Jack served as an artist/correspondent for YANK magazine in the United Kingdom and Europe, and captured war time scenes from the front lines.
He wrote and/or illustrated a large number of books on subjects ranging from space travel to underwater travel, as well as providing illustrations for advertisements, magazine articles and magazine covers, many of which may not be widely appreciated nowadays.
As Jack has no direct descendants, this website has been created by a member of his extended family to display an extensive collection of his works as a tribute to his enormous lifetime achievements.
I hope you enjoy viewing the collection and I would appreciate any comments or further information. Visitors who need official permission to use Jack's images or writings for publication please click here.
