INTRODUCTION

Charles S. Hopkinson, a resident of Boston, Cambridge, and Manchester, Massachusetts, led a long, happy, and surprisingly productive life. Born in Cambridge in 1869, he was already a recognized portrait painter by 1904 when his one-man show at 5 Park St., Boston, won acclaim. By the time of his death (in 1962 at age 93) he had painted more than 700 portraits, including portraits of two US presidents, four US Supreme Court justices, 16 university presidents, 49 university deans and professors, and many nationally known lawyers, bankers, industrialists, and philanthropists.

Throughout his 60 productive years his enthusiasm, vigor, and joie de vivre never flagged. Blessed with a devoted wife, five vivacious daughters, and scores of affectionate relatives and friends, he was inspired to work long hours trying out new techniques and extending the freshness and power of his portraits and also his water-color landscape paintings. (This catalog deals solely with portraits. A separate catalog, in preparation, deals with landscapes, marine scenes, and still life paintings.)

Because Hopkinson gave little attention to record-keeping we have had difficulty in compiling the present catalog. Help has been received from lists prepared by Harvard University curators, from friends and relatives, from income data recorded by Mrs. Hopkinson, from informal stores of labeled and unlabeled photographs of portraits, and from faded newspaper clippings.

Very likely we have overlooked some of the portraits. We shall welcome information as to additional portraits and further information on those already catalogued.

The entries are arranged alphabetically by the subject's last name. The name used is the name pertinent at the time the portrait was painted, not some later time when a different name was used, e.g., after marriage. When, for a given family, there are portraits of one person, two persons together, three persons together, etc, always the portraits of just one person are described first, then those of two persons, and so on.

Each entry presents the name of the subject (name of person painted). his birth and death dates, and indications of his main activities, occupations, and pertinent relationships. It then presents the date the portrait was painted, the main dimensions (height and width of visible area of painting, to the nearest half-inch), information as to inscribed signature and date, and a brief description of the pose, clothing, and background. The entry concludes with information on ownership, present location, and sources of data. Of course, in many instances some at the desired information is uncertain or lacking.

Except where indicated otherwise, all portraits are oil on canvas.

For brevity, we use "Hopkinson House" to mean the Charles Hopkinson house in Manchester, Massachusetts, a house atop a cliff commanding a superb view of the rugged coastline from Boston to Gloucester. In referring to the Massachusetts locations Boston, Cambridge, and Manchester, we omit "Massachusetts", and in referring to Harvard University we omit "University".

We employ the following abbreviations for persons:

CSH Charles Sydney Hopkinson

ECH Elinor Curtis Hopkinson (wife of CSH) EHB Elinor Hopkinson Barr

HHR Harriot Hopkinson Rive

IH Isabella Halsted

JHS Joan Hopkinson Shurcliff

MHG or MHGT Mary Hopkinson Gibbon, later Mary Hopkinson Gibbon Thompson

Also KZP, Karen Zamecnik Pierson, and WS, William A. Shurcliff.

Two classes of sketches are recognized in this catalog: those that are sufficiently complete and powerful to deserve detailed cataloging and Ihose that deserve only brief mention.

About 70 CSH portraits or sketches are self-portraits. In describing these. we have employed a special format that makes the information more compact and also permits distinguishing the many paintings that are nearly identical.

Portraits of subjects whose identities are not known are listed last.

Appendix 1 lists some of the exhibitions in which Hopkinson paintings were included. Appendix 2 presents comments by art critics. Appendix 3 lists pertinent reference works.

Effort has been made to verify most of the material presented, but in some instances we have been forced to rely on incomplete and dubious information, and statements presented may be wrong.
