Sir Roland Richardson, is another prominent artist within the Impressionist movement. He is currently one of the Caribbean’s most respected artists and is someone who embodies the impressionist technique in all of his work and persona. While he maintains a ‘simple life of genuine focus’ and even at 68 years of age is still painting, his artwork receives international recognition for revealing ‘true symbols of the region’s beauty and rich culture’ and he is now considered a leading artist in the School of Caribbean Art. Using original oil, watercolour, pastel, charcoal, etching, engraving, woodcut and drypoint, his pieces are always created on location and are often of a living subject.
Sir Roland Richardson’s artwork preserves the image of the Caribbean as being a paradise and leaves the viewer with an impression of nature and colour.
