The artist Richard Lee Barton was born in 1952 in North America. He won the State prize for drawing in 1970 at the age of 17. At the age of 19 he began studies under top Flemish masters and held successful exhibitions throughout Belgium. Barton later returned to America and founded an arts center in his hometown and became Artist in Education for the National Endowment for the Arts. He has a good reputation for teaching and producing paintings with exhibitions throughout America.
