This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Richard Seyffert was a Philadelphian born in19l5, and he came to New York and studied at the National Academy for several years with Leon  Kroll and Gifford Beal.  World War II found him in a Navy uniform as a photographer’s mate, after which he lived in Bolivia and Peru. It was in the latter country that he painted a portrait of the bullfighter “Manolete".

In 1950, returning to the U.S. he established a studio at the National Arts Club in New York City. After a show of Seyffert's at the Grand Central Gallery, the American painter, John Johansen wrote, "Seyffert is an exceptionally good painter.  All his portraits are marked by character, by skill and good taste, and reach distinction". 

One can look from his portraits of opera singer, Patrice Munsell to commentator Ed Murrow, and to the drawings of Richard Rodgers and poet W. H. Auden, and see how accurately Johansen described his work.  Later he has devoted more time to landscape and compositional works. His sense of color became more modern extending his choice of medium into pastel and watercolor.

From 1965 to 1979 he taught at the Art Students League  in New York City.
