Remarkable Journey towards an Art Gallerist
We all somehow believe that our future career will be in some way decided by the profession of our family members. And when you saw your father’s hard work and success in his field, then you ultimately get attracted in the same field. Interestingly, a similar thing happened to the life of Cooke. That’s why Cooke followed the paths of his father (his hero) and came into the world of the art gallery. Shortly talking about his father, he was one of the famous professional art dealers in Manhattan. He worked as the Head of American Painting at Christie’s and Sotheby’s.
Back on October 28, 2011, he appeared as a guest at the free-spirit end-of-summer party hosted by The Hole gallery’s creative director Fabiola Beracasa at her residence in Montauk.

He told that “In the art world, the way information is shared is rapidly changing and a growing group of internet-savvy collectors is searching for art online with galleries eager to provide it.”
One of the amazing reports was that Cooke’s one contact friend said that “He’s definitely respected. He’s not a big player, but he’s a player.” He further added, “I’d say he understands what good art is, as opposed to a lot of art dealers who just like to go to parties and do deals. I know that he likes contemporary but I know he also appreciates modernism. I think he really has solid taste in art and he’s a very good art dealer, and I expect a fruitful career out of him.”
