This biography from the Archives of AskART:
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, 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.

In 1828, art critic John Neal touted his work, having seen it on a visit to Portland, and this recognition was a significant boost to Codman's career. He exhibited at the Boston Athenaeum and the National Academy of Design in New York City.

In his romantic landscapes, human figures are diminished, and the lighting is manipulated to heighten drama. Some of these scenes are artificial looking, but they provide historically important material with depictions of buildings, genre and townscape activity.
