James Crowe Richmond (1822-1898) is another of the leading colonial watercolour painters whose works after he arrived as a settler in Taranaki in 1851 inspired a generation. He encouraged John Gully amongst others and despite entering political life continued painting and exhibiting. Later he travelled widely in Europe, but returned to New Zealand. His daughter Dorothy Kate Richmond is almost equally well known. Both Richmonds are widely represented in New Zealand galleries. Prints were published of Richmond’s work by the Capper Press in their NZ traditional landscape series.
