Additional Information about the Artist

A painter of Norfolk architecture, and writer and poet, the son of an amateur artist, Hodgson was educated at Norwich Grammar School, where John Crome taught him drawing. He would later, from 1832, be employed as drawing master at the school himself.

In 1822 he became Secretary of the Norwich Society of Artists. With Thomas Lound he revived the Artists’ ‘Converzationes’, in which artists met to discuss their work.

His printmaking would seem to be specifically related to two books – Picturesque Views of all the Bridges belonging to the County of Norfolk, illustrated with his own lithographs, published 1842 and Antiquarian Remains Principally confined to Norwich and Norfolk, illustrated with twenty of his own etchings based on earlier drawings, published 1838.
