Artist Information:

Richards received his first artistic education at the Corcoran Art School in Washington, D.C. He graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Williams College in 1904 and continued his studies at the famed Chase School in New York, where he studied under Robert Henri and Edward Penfield, and where he was to meet his future wife Gertrude Lundborg. Gertrude Lundborg’s portrait by William Merritt Chase is also part of the Museum's permanent collection.

An illustrator by choice, Richards was first art director at "Everybody's Magazine" in New York. After he left the position in 1914, he became a free lance illustrator, mostly producing work for MacMillian & Company. He illustrated several historical text books, fairy tales, funny adventure stories, books of poetry, and posters. Upon his retirement to Winter Park, Hugh McKean, then Director of the Art Department, engaged Mr. Richards to teach graphic design. After his death in January 1958, the Morse Gallery of Art, now the Cornell Fine Arts Museum, held a "George M. Richards Memorial Exhibition" that included more than eighty paintings and drawings which surveyed the artist's career.
