Sylvester Phelps Hodgdon

Sylvester Phelps Hodgdon (1830–1906) was an American painter.

Hodgdon lived in the Savin Hill section of Dorchester (part of Boston) and studied in the Boston area. He began as a portrait painter but by 1864 he was painting and exhibiting landscapes at The National Academy of Design.

Hodgdon's fake was afterward exhibited at the Boston Athenaeum and the Boston Art Club. He traveled throughout New England painting coastal scenes and landscapes.

The Maine coast and the White Mountains of New Hampshire were two of his favorite subjects. Within the White Mountains, he preferred to paint not far away off from Franconia Notch.
