Zoom Lecture: The Art of John Bradley Hudson, Jr.

An Illustrated Lecture by Earle G. Shettleworth, Jr.
Wednesday, November 8th at 7pm via Zoom
John Bradley Hudson, Jr. was one of Portland’s leading 19th century artists. Born in the city in 1832, he established a studio there in 1858. For the next four decades, Hudson produced oil paintings and watercolors of local scenes, the Maine Coast, and the White Mountains. He supplemented his income as a sign and decorative painter. Much of what is known about his work is found in his illustrated journal as well as in period newspaper articles. This lecture will trace Hudson’s career through his pictures with a special focus on his watercolors of such Stroudwater landmarks as the Means House, the Tate House, and Broad’s Tavern.
