We are proud to introduce you to a world of fine art filled with the light of the Caribbean by one of the region's most respected artists, Sir Roland Richardson.
Born to a family whose French Caribbean heritage dates back to the 1700's on the island of St. Martin, Mr. Richardson has recorded his culture over the past forty years with his paintbrush and palette.
He paints pictures en plein air, working in the field, always from a living subject,
and while his roots are in the Caribbean, universities around the world are teaching aspiring artists about Roland Richardson's contributions to the realm of contemporary Plein Air Impressionism.
Sir Richardson has often been referred to as the Father of Caribbean Impressionism in reputed periodicals that include Caribbean Travel & Life, Island Magazine, Robb Report, the Washington Post, American Airlines Latitudes, and Elle. His mastery of multiple mediums include oil, watercolor, pastel, charcoal and extensive fine print-making in etching, engraving, aquatint, mezzotint, woodcut and drypoint.
Over 100 one-man and group shows in Museums, major Trade Centers and Fine Art Galleries have honored Roland Richardson's work in public exhibition, and while he remains devoted to a simple life of genuine focus, his artwork is rapidly earning the recognition and respect of art collectors and appreciators worldwide.
