Miles Richmond artwork for sale and artist biography
Miles Richmond began his studies at the Kingston School of Art in the early 1940s, before, at the urging of Cliff Holden, Dorothy Mead, and Susanna Richmond (his future wife), he joined David Bomberg's classes at the Borough Polytechnic. Richmond was a founding member of the Borough Group and exhibited his work in the Group's dedicated and associated shows, which were held at v...arious venues between 1947 and 1951. In 1954, encouraged by Bomberg, Richmond moved to Ronda in Andalusia, Spain, where he lived and worked for more than twenty years. He taught alongside David Bomberg, who had attempted set up his own school in Ronda. Richmond also later taught at Alastair Boyd's International School in Spain, and at Morley College in London. One of his most celebrated commissions was a mural for London South Bank University’s London Road building, commissioned to celebrate the Millennium and in homage to David Bomberg. In 2008, Richmond died at his family home in Middlesbrough, surrounded by family, books, paints, paper and canvas. Practically until his last days, he had continued to paint and draw.
