|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.|

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
