This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Susan Hinckley Greenough Bradley was a landscape painter whose subject matter was wide ranging geographically including Egypt, Greece, Tunisia, Italy, Switzerland, France and Ireland, and the United States including the West.  According to a Boston newspaper, she painted "mountains of western Canada and of Colorado, the Grand Canôn in Arizona, the streets of New York, and the shores of Massachusetts and Maine."  (Kovinick 27)  In 1939, for the 50th Anniversary of the Boston Society of Watercolor Painters, she exhibited a painting, On the Divide, Santa Fe; and in 1911 at the Artists' Club of Denver, her entry was Grand Canon in Winter.

She was born in 1851 in Boston, Massachusetts and lived there primarily until 1889, when she moved to Philadelphia.  Her parents were  Samuel Lyman and Anne Cutler Hinckley, the sister of portraitist Robert Cutler Hinkckley, who taught at the Corcoran School of Art.   Her first art lessons were in Rome with Edward Boit in 1875.  However, her planned art career was interrupted with her 1879 marriage to Reverend Leverett Bradley and the raising of four children.  Eventually she resumed her fine art focus, which included study with William Merritt Chase, Boit in Rome again, Abbott Thayer and in Boston in 1905 at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts. 

Among her exhibition venues were the Panama Pacific International Exposition in 1915, Louisiana Purchase Exposition in 1904, and the American Watercolor Society in 1902.

Her work is in the collection of the John Herron Art Institute in Indianapolis, Indiana. She was a member of the Society of Independent Artists, Boston Watercolor Club, Philadelphia Watercolor Club and New York Watercolor Club.

An article on the artist appeared in the July 1924 issue of the American Magazine of Art, "Susan H. Bradley," by Laura E. Richards.  Bradley is also listed in the Dictionary of American Painters, Sculptors and Engravers, by Mantle Fielding, published in 1974 by Modern Books and Crafts.

Susan Bradley died in 1929 in Boston.
