Hiro Fine Art is interested in purchasing artworks by William Trost Richards.

American landscape painter, William Trost Richards was associated with the Hudson River School and the American Pre-Raphaelite movement. He became well known in his mid twenties after he was shown in an exhibition in New York, organized by Albert Bierstadt in 1858. Shortly after, he exhibited work at the Academy of Design and at the Brooklyn Art Association and was elected into to the National Academy of Design and Accedemia.
His work is distinct from other Hudson River School painters because rejected the romanticized style. Instead he painted details meticulously with a photographic quality. In his later years, he moved away from oils and painted with watercolors. After his death, his daughter went on to become a painter herself and his works were hung in important institutions such as the Smithsonian American Art Museum and the Museum of Fine Art, Boston.
