In his day, Todd was said to have been the finest grape painters, with his work reminiscent of the Dutch School.

Born in Suffolk, England in 1846 to father Arthur Todd who owned a large interior decoration business, specialising in ceilings and murials.
Aged 18, Todd enrolled in the Royal Kensington School of Art, where he studied painting and drawing and became a great admirer of Dutch Masters. Following this, Todd began working full time for the family business as a decorator and guilder. In his spare time however, he continued to paint still life and the Suffolk countryside. Although his working was slow, being sensitive to the slightest of criticism, Todd would defer working on a piece or erase it entirely.

 

Although exhibiting at the Royal Academy in 1888 and Ipswich Fine Art Society between 1875 and 1897, his stubborn nature hampered his prosperity as he made little attempt to attract patrons.

Todd felt passionately about every picture he painted.
