Description
A fine oil on canvas still life of Rhododendrons in a glass vase by Herbert Davis Richter (1874-1955). The painting is beautifully worked with great confidence and an impressionistic use of thick paint and broad brushstrokes. The detail is quite wonderful on each individual flower and I particularly like the small Buddhist figure next to the vase. The painting is signed twice in both the bottom left and right. The work has been professionally cleaned and a small repair made and is in excellent condition. The fine gilt frame is probably the original and retains the original Edinburgh gallery label on the reverse. Herbert Davis Richter was a British artist who worked in many mediums; oil, water-colour and pastel. He was also master of many genres; still life, architectural studies and figures. Richter painted several scenes in Buckingham Palace and also the homes of many society figures of his day, in addition to scenes in his own homes in Redcliffe Square, London and Hungerford. Richter was born in Brighton on 10th May 1874. He studied furniture design at Bath School of Art before setting himself up in business in Bath as an architect and designer 1895-1906. After this period Richter travelled to London to continue his studies, enrolling at Lambeth College and the London School of Art where he studied under Browning and J. M. Swan. He exhibited his work at the major London Galleries and leading venues in the provinces. In 1937 he contributed to work to the Exposition Internationale de Paris, where he was awarded a Gold Medal. Richter was elected to the Royal Society of British Artists in 1910, the Pastel Society in 1916, the Royal Institute of Oil Painters in 1917, the Royal Institute in 1920, the Royal British Colonial Society of Artists in 1927 and the Royal Watercolour Society in 1937. The painting is a fine example of this artists still life work and a wonderfully decorative work that is ready to hang. C.1950.
