George Richmond (1809-1896), Portrait painter and draughtsman; son of Thomas Richmond

Sitter in 14 portraits
Artist associated with 326 portraits
Painter and miniaturist. Richmond studied at the Royal Academy Schools where he met and formed a lifelong friendship with Samuel Palmer. As a youth he became a disciple of William Blake who had a profound effect on his art. With Palmer and Edward Calvert he formed 'The Ancients', painting visionary works in the manner of William Blake. Throughout this time Richmond practised as a miniaturist and this work dates to the end of his 'Ancients' period in 1830. After his marriage in 1831, Richmond concentrated on portraiture, becoming one of the most prolific portraitists of the Victorian period.
