Richard

The artist known as L. Richard is reaching the prime of his career, evidenced bothby the masterful balance of color, life and light, and by his receipt ofthe 1999 Grand Prize at the Schekch National Art Exhibition in his home nationof Korea.  Born in Suncheon City, Korea on September 16, 1957, theartist graduated from Maisan High School before challenging the rocococomplexities of the eighteenth-century French masters. 

His bright skies and dexterity of brushwork echo the mastery of Fragonard, and his delicate ferns and flowers contrast beautifully with his trademark grapes and other robust, vivid fruits. And in addition to his elegance and technical virtuosity, the careful observer will note that each L. Richard original has small visual surprises tucked away, filling every inch of his work with delight.
