American painter whose style and subject matter align him with the Regionalist (American scene painting) and Magic Realist landscape tradition.

Cox's output as an artist was relatively modest but his works featured in numerous important annual living artist exhibitions during the 1940s and 1950s. He worked slowly, painting his landscapes at home, from memory, often taking a year or two to finish a painting. His paintings number fewer than 20.

One of Cox's best known works is Gray and Gold from 1942, held in the permanent collection of the Cleveland Museum of Art. The painting was produced shortly after the United States joined the Second World War.

John Rogers Cox was born on 25 January 1990, aged 74, in Louisville, Kentucky.
