Robin Richmond AWRS
Robin Richmond is widely recognised as a collectable contemporary landscape artist, broadcaster, academic and art historian born in the US and now living and working in rural South West France and London. Robin describes the work in her exhibitions as stories; she gives her work titles which all have a narrative. Robin travels widely. Her favourite subjects are the trees, fields, skies, lakes, ponds, distant horizons and changes in light of the countryside. She says, "my existential focus is my work and this is why specificity of place is so important to me. The exact place and sometimes the time of day is often in the title of my paintings. I travel to places to think about them".
Robin graduated from Chelsea School of Art with a BA in Painting and an MA in the History of Art. She is a fellow of Morse College, University of Yale and has held a number of teaching positions at the Universities of California, London and Yale.
She is the author of 7 books, including Michelangelo and the Creation of the Sistine Chapel, (1992) and Frida Kahlo in Mexico (1994).
Robin has had over 30 solo exhibitions around the world, including at the Curwen Gallery, London, the Piers Feetham Gallery, London. She has also participated in many Group shows including the recent Bankside Gallery's Art of Travel exhibition 2019 London. She has a one woman show coming up in April 2020 at the Centre Culturel Jean -Pierre Fabregue, Ville de Saint-Yrieix in France.
Her work is in many corporate and private collections here and in the US, and in a number of museums including the Hepworth Wakefield.
