Richard Bisschop


Richard Bisschop, a Dutch painter, draftsman and watercolorist, was born in Leeuwarden and started his artistic training at the age of 22, when he decided to quit his career as an engineer in favor of further studies at the Art Academy in Rotterdam.  His oeuvre includes genre scenes as well as townscapes and portraits.

Bisschop was active in Rotterdam and The Hague, where he became a member of the artists' association Pulchri Studio.  Examples of his artistic output are preserved, for instance, at the Gemeentemuseum in The Hague or at the Museum voor Moderne Kunst in Arnhem. (cbo)
