Biography   Richmond Barthe


Richmond Barthe (Barthé) is known for his many public works.  He received acclaim for his realistic sculptural depictions of African-Americans during the 1930s-40s, and produced numerous portraits, as well as allegorical* and genre* figures, and became especially known for his dancers (Falk).

Barthe was born in Bay St. Louis, Mississippi of French Creole ancestry.  His mother was a Robeteau, of New Orleans French Creole ancestry; the Barthé family came from the South West region of France, where descendants today still operate an active vineyard among other enterprises.

At the age of eighteen, Barthe, then residing in New Orleans, won his first prize -- a blue ribbon for a drawing he sent to the County Fair.    ...  Displaying 750 of 11991 characters.
