Biography   Francis Todhunter


A landscape painter and printmaker, he was born in San Francisco, California on July 29, 1884.  Todhunter was a pupil of John Stanton and Arthur Mathews at the Mark Hopkins Institute, and Gottardo Piazzoni and Frank Van Sloun at the California School of Fine Arts, followed by study at the Art Students League in New York City. 

He began his career as an illustrator for Overland Monthly and later worked for the San Francisco Chronicle, San Francisco Call, and Washington (DC) Times.  He worked in New York as a commercial artist until 1912, when he returned to San Francisco to become art director for the H.
