This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following is from Peter Kostoulakos, AOA, NEAA:  Fine Art Consultant,

John Amory Codman — painter of portraits, landscapes, harbors, beach, and marine scenes — was born in 1824 and died in 1886.  He resided and worked in Boston, MA from 1849 through the 1860s.  He exhibited with the Apollo Association in 1839; the American Art-Union in 1849; the Boston Athenaeum in 1856; and he displayed two oil paintings, Marblehead Neck and Landscape, at the Boston Art Club in 1873.

Codman is listed in the Boston City Directory 1849 to 1855 as an artist and thereafter without an occupation.  He is listed in Mary Bartlett Cowdrey's, American Academy of Fine Arts and American Art-Union, 1953, and Mabel M. Swan's, The Athenaeum Gallery 1872-1873, Boston, 1940.

Codman's work is represented in many private and public collections: the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston has eleven marine and coastal paintings, five watercolors and six oils on canvas, paperboard, and panel supports.
