This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Richard Alther is a painter of atmospheric watercolor landscapes combining abstraction and realism. They have minimal detail and broad washes of color. His studio is at Fort Cassin Point in Ferrisburgh, Vermont where his studio is surrounded by water.

The following is from the Furchgott-Sourdiffe Gallery that represents him in Shelbourne, Vermont:

Richard began painting, in oil, as a 10-year-old at his Fort Cassin residence, which was then rented by his grandparents as a summer camp. Throughout his schooling at Cornell University and professional life in New York City, he continued oil painting, from abstract palette knife expressions to portraits of family and friends. During his two-year residence in London he attended the Heatherley School of Fine Art, concentrating on portraiture. Upon moving to Vermont in 1967 he began work in watercolors, but continued his oil portraits. He studied with Lawrence Goldsmith, in Fairfax and Monhegan, Maine. In regard to his present work, Richard offers the following:

"I think of watercolors as fleeting impressions. With oil, the same original inspiration becomes a statement, evolving over weeks."

"When the sky is being dramatic, I run outdoors. When it's sullen, I stare through a window. I make a quick pencil sketch. These sketches pile up, but there are always a few that stick to the ribs, and beckon to be taken seriously."

"I have a ring-side seat at this endless show of light and color."
