Can you give me any info on this artist. It is an oil painting, signed Hodson. an
initial preceeds the last name but I can't make it out. It measure approx. 16 X
20". Dated 1867.  Image enclosed. Thanks for any help. Richard Sack

Answer
Dear Richard,
This is probably Samuel John Hodson (Br.1837-1908)painter of genre, rivers, and children. However he was mostly an illustrator and lithographer for the "Graphic" magazine. His paintings seldom show up and when they do they bring little money.
Cordially,
Dan
