This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following is from Peter Kostoulakos, AOA, NEAA: Fine Art Consultant,

Richard Henry Fuller, an artist known for his landscapes and portraits in oil and crayon, was born in Bradford, NH on October 19,1822 and died in Chelsea, MA on December 24, 1871. Fuller was orphaned at the age of seven and moved to Boston, MA in 1840. Later he moved to Chelsea and earned his living making cigars until his health started to fail in 1854. He went to Minnesota and stayed for two years before returning to Chelsea to become a police officer.

In his limited spare time he taught himself to be a very proficient artist. It is thought that Fuller was mostly self-taught, but according to "Vose Galleries, Boston Art Club 1855-1950", he may have received some training from Joseph Morviller (1800-1870), a landscape painter who exhibited with the Boston Art Club from 1855 to 1858.

Some of the reference books list Fuller as a portrait painter in oil and crayon but in most of his work the landscape is the dominant force within which he places subordinate figures, cattle, roads, and rivers. His panoramic, calming scenes of the greater Boston area are equal to any of the American artists of his time with European, academic training.

Fuller exhibited at the Boston Athenaeum in 1863 and 1864 and, in 1875, at the Boston Art Club with a landscape entitled "May", which was owned and lent by William Morris Hunt (1824-1879). The Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, MA owns four of his oil paintings: "Poplar Trees", "Edgeworth Near Medford", "View, Malden," and "Near Chelsea, 1847." He died "of the effects of overwork" at the young age of 49 (Vose...).
