Artist Biography

Bob Richardson was born in 1938 in Lancashire and after five years of Art School he worked in advertising. Bob Richardson has been cited as one of the best pastel artists of his generation.


Considerable success at exhibitions as an amateur painter led him to the decision to turn professional in 1975. Bob Richardson is known for his luminous, confident paintings that exude a sense of well-being and optimism, tranquil yet exciting. Warm sunlight and the joy of being outdoors in fine weather in some of the world’s favourite locations are Bob’s forte.


Bob Richardson, who lives in Sale with his wife, Helga, says his earliest memories are of walking past the Salford Docks with his mother, as they burned, throwing flames and smoke into the night sky, following a bombing raid by the German Luftwaffe. This visual imprint and memory, followed by the later decay and eventual destruction of the Salford he grew up in, was a driving force in Bob’s early work, which put him firmly on the map as a key artist of the Northern School, alongside LS Lowry - who he knew well - fellow Salford resident Harold Riley and close friend Arthur Delaney.


While Bob’s early works are centred upon the places where he spent his childhood and his younger years, recording scenes that soon become no more than social history, many of his more recent pieces are a joyous celebration of the parks and landscapes of Cheshire.


Bob Richardson’s reputation has steadily grown, now being a voting member of the Pastel Society and a regular exhibitor at the Confederation of British Artists and at the Mall Galleries in London. He was awarded their Grand Prix in 1991 and other awards have followed. Bob Richardson paintings are now in many significant corporate collections including Granada TV, BMW Cars Ltd, Walkers Crisps, Boddingtons Brewery, Manchester Stock Exchange and the Salford Art Gallery. Paintings in private collections include those of Baroness Margaret Thatcher and Rolling Stone Bill Wyman.
