George Richmond(1809-1896)




Two portraits by Richmond of CMY exist, one in the NPG, the other a sketch of her head. He also painted WCY (the picture reproduced in Coleridge Life), Keble (at the behest of Sir William Heathcote) and Mary Ann Moberly. In Richmond's archive in the Royal Academy are some letters about the Keble commission, including one from Heathcote telling Richmond to ignore WCY's attempts to interfere with the design.
