This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following is from Tim Webb who received the information from Monica Mieroszewska, Smithsonian American Art Museum when he inquired about Gerald Richardson.

"I found information on an artist by this name, though it appears that landscape painting was not his major emphasis. I found no references to any other artist that shared this name. The following is from Who's Who in American Art (New York: R. R. Bowker, 1973):

Work in Public Collections: French Naval Club, Paris; National Naval Memorial Museum, Washington, DC; Admiral Jerauld Wright Building; Norfolk Naval Base; Lyndon B. Johnson Ranch; Sam Rayburn Library, Texas; plus others

Commissions: Large oil painting, The (PT) 109, Kennedy Library Art Interests: Portrayal of nautical, sports car, and air activities, historical combat scenes and all-subject murals

The museum library's extensive pamphlet files includes an undated cv, which appears to have been submitted by the artist, and I have included excerpts:

"...Gerard Richardson was born in New York City in 1910 of a long line of U.S. born citizens, but was educated in Europe. He studied art at the Ecole Nationale des Beaux-Arts in Paris, and while traveling in France, Italy, Switzerland, Spain and England.

He was established in Paris until World War II as a professional artist and illustrator, specializing in a wide variety of subjects. His nautical paintings were very well known and have been reproduced in magazines in Italy, France and England. They also hang in appropriate places such as homes of international sportsmen and major yacht clubs in those countries. The same can be said of his portrayals of sports car activities.

The many originals, which were used for covers of the American publication, The Motorboating Magazine, now hang on the walls of the Hearst Buildings in New York City.

His work has been exhibited in many places in Europe, in New York City and at the Truxtan-Decatur Naval Museum, the Navy Department and the Pentagon, in Washington D.C.  It has been marketed by the Knoedler and the Norton Galleries on 57th Street in New York and at the Venables Gallery on Connecticut Avenue in Washington, D. C.

Serving in the USNR in World War II (now Commander) he was awarded two citations, with combat insignia, which refer to his professional ability...

Commander Richardson's last tour of duty was with the U.S. Navy Combat Art Branch of the Office of the Chief of Information (Public Relations) which has several of his official paintings, as does also the U.S. Naval History Division."

The following note was submitted in May of 2006 by  Allen Autry, Sr.

His most famous painting was “Heavenly Mist” which showed a Japanese destroyer crashing into PT109, which was John F. Kennedy’s command.  This picture hung in the White House while Kennedy was president and now hangs in the  JFK Library.
