Biography

(1903-71)

The last paintings of Ceri Richards are large, colourful and compelling and explore the artist's major preoccupations with music, poetry and landscape. One of the most successful and important painters and print-makers of his generation, which included Moore, Hepworth and Nicholson, Richards was a prizewinner at the Venice Biennale in 1962. After his death, he was the subject of major retrospectives at Tate (1981) and at the National Museum of Wales (2002).
