Bio

Tom Dodson was born in Salford, son of a labourer and eldest of five children. A typical working class Lancashire family in an age where hard times and humour often went hand in hand. As a schoolchild the young Thomas Dodson was always top of the class in drawing and could often be found filling the pavements around his backstreet Ordsall home with chalk drawings of the local characters.

He left school at the age of 14 to become a grocer and subsequently worked in a number of trades to support his family. Shortly before retiring he took-up painting and depicted a number of scenes from his youth with warmth and sincerity. He held a 'sell-out' solo exhibition at Bell Galleries, Sale in 1974 and this resulted in 36 of his originals being reproduced as over 30,000 limited edition prints. In 1998 the Salford Quays Heritage Centre, with the support of Studio Arts, Lancaster, held a commemorative exhibition.

Disclaimer
We focus on previous auction data, not primary market sales. Our data may be incomplete or slightly inaccurate. Although we have comprehensive historical data on each piece, artist, their work, and their series drastically differ based on the artistic content, condition of the piece, colouring, methods, and many other factors. We therefore cannot guarantee that we, ArtVenture, can appraise or give you an exact representation of the future price and performance of the artwork and recommend you not to put undue reliance on this data.
