This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Samuel Richards arrived in Denver, Colorado in September, 1892, a few weeks before the Denver Art League opened its doors, and he accepted the directorship of the school. It was said that he had been offered the Directorship of the School of Fine Arts in Boston, but his tuberculosis determined his decision to move to Colorado.

Source: Doris Dawdy, "Artists of the American West"
Samuel Richards was an "expressive figure painter of monumental and literary subjects." (Falk) He was born in Indiana and trained in Munich, as did many Indiana artists of that period. He was part of the original Hoosier School of artists, a group dedicated to creating American Impressionism, not confined to French dictates. However, he died before he could become very active with the group.

Earlier he became ill in Europe, and this illness was the reason he returned to the United States when he did and then went to Colorado.

His obituary was written by his good friend, James Whitcomb Riley.

Peter Falk, "Who Was Who in American Art"
William Gerdts, "American Impressionism, Henry Gallery"
The following is from Doy Louise Groenenberg, Yakima, WA

Samuel G. Richards is a very distant cousin-in-law of mine, through his wife.

Samuel's wife was Louise Parks, daughter of Rev. Robert Milton Parks
(1815-1890) and Jane Tate (Short) Parks (1820-1904). Both were born in
Lawrence Co., IN, and Louise probably was as well. Both of the parents
died in Lawrence Co.

About the only other thing I know at this point is that at the time of the 1880 census, Samuel and Louise were living in Anderson, Madison Co., IN.

According to the 1880 census, Louise was also an artist, but I have not
yet found any additional information on her.
