(15.75 b 32.25”)

The verso retaining the label of James Todd’s LOOKING-GLASS MANUFACTORY who
worked at various addressed in Portland, Maine from 1820 to circa 1866 who was born
at Hingham, Massachusetts and was brother of William, a cabinet maker with shops in
Boston and Hingham. At the age of 16 James apprenticed to Paul Mondelly, a French-born
looking glass maker with a shop in Boston.

One of the early landscape painters, Charles Codman was born in Portland, Maine and
lived there for most of his life. He was a self-taught, successful painter of landscapes
and marine scenes, primitive portraits, painting and enameling on glass for timepieces,
looking glasses, ladies’ needlework and signs. It is believed Codman apprenticed with
clockmakers, Simon and Aaron Willard of Roxbury and after that sign-painter, John
Ritto Penniman of Roxbury and Boston.
