THE ARTIST

Richards, Frances

1903 – 1985

Frances Richards (nŽ e Clayton) worked as a pottery designer for
Paragon while studying at Burslem School of Art (1919’24),
before winning a scholarship to the Royal College of Art (1924′
27) where she met Ceri Richards (whom she married in 1929).

Greatly influenced by Italian Renaissance painters, she
specialised in tempera and fresco painting in her studies, and
continued to work in tempera after leaving the college. During
the 1930s she produced lithographs, and in 1931 provided twelve
drawings for The Revelation of St. John the Divine.

In 1945, she held her first solo exhibition at the Redfern
Gallery, where she exhibited again in 1949 and 1954. She also
took part in shows at Hannover Gallery (1950), the Leicester
Galleries (1964 and 1969), the Howard Roberts Gallery, and
Holsworthy Gallery (1981).

A respected teacher, Richards held posts at Camberwell School
of Art (1928’39) and later Chelsea School of Art (1947’59).
