This biography from the Archives of AskART:

The following information was submitted in June of 2006 by Art Historian Michael R. Perez:

Charles H. Richert was born in Boston, Massachusetts on July 7, 1880.  His early primary addresses during his life are listed as Arlington and Belmont, Massachusetts.  In 1906-1907 he had a studio in West Medford, Massachusetts.  He studied at the Massachusetts Normal Art School, and with Joseph De Camp, Ernest L. Major, and R. Andrew.  He spent a year in Europe studying at some of the principle art galleries there.  Some time later in his life he moved to Ellsworth, Maine and opened a studio there.  From there he painted many scenes of the coastal area around Blue Hill Bay and Bar Harbor, Maine.  His last address where he eventually died was in Gloucester, Massachusetts.

He was a member of the Boston Society of Water Color Painters, Painters Guild, Boston Artists, and the American Watercolor Society.  He exhibited at the Boston Art Club (1906-1907), the New York Water Color Club, the American Water Color Society, the American Federation of Art, the Philadelphia Art Club, the Connecticut Academy of Art, the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art Annual Exhibition 1912, the Beaux-Arts Institute of Design 1919 (prize), 1920 (prize), the National Academy of Design 1923, the Art Institute of Chicago, and the Boston Museum of Fine Arts.

He held teaching positions at the Rindge Technical School in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and the Massachusetts School of Art.  During his career he also worked for some time designing theater set layouts, and was known to have created color woodblock prints.  His work is represented in some of the most prestigious public and private collections in the US, including, the Farnsworth Art Museum in Rockland, Maine.   

Charles Henry Richert died in Gloucester, Massachusetts on January 15, 1974.
