It is believed that Edmund C. Coates lived in New York City during his active period 1837-1872. Brooklyn and New York City telephone directories from those years list him as Edward, Edmund C., E.C. and E.G. Coates.
Coates painted landscapes, portraits, marine and historical works. His paintings include landscapes of Canada and Italy though it is not known if the artist traveled to those countries or if other works inspired the scenes.
