Julien Hudson ( active 1830-40)
"Freelance Painter"




Julien Hudson was a freeman of mixed race from New Orleans. Born into the so-called mulatto group, Hudson partook of the French-influenced, flamboyant, upper-class lifestyle that was available to well-born free Creoles in New Orleans.

One of his important works as his painting Battle of New Orleans (1815), which documented the contribution made to the War of 1812 by the famous corps of free Black soldiers and its white commander, Colonel Michel Jean Fortier, Jr. Hudson is also distinguished for painting, in 1839, the only known self-portrait of an Creole artist in the antebellum period.
