Commentaires : Born in New York, Richardson was the daughter of engravers. In her early teens, the family settled in San Francisco and her father gave her drawing lessons. At age 20, she enrolled in the Cooper Union Institute of Design (New York) and pursued painting and drawing, while a sister, Leila, concentrated on woodblock engraving. A year later, the sisters opened an engraving shop in San Francisco and Mary married Thomas Richardson, a wealth lumberman. In 1871, Leila and another woman opened Crane & Curtis Engraving. Mary drew designs for their block prints while pursuing art studies in San Francisco and at the avant-garde Art Student League in New York. It was here that her work began to take on Impressionist tones and her frequent mother-and-child themes later led to comparisons with Mary Cassatt. Following a National Academy of Design prize in 1887 and shows of her work in San Francisco, New York, Washington and Philadelphia, Richardson began receiving portrait commissions on both coasts. Attributed to Richardson (reference made in Black inventory book— #336 HR)) In 1888, she and her husband built a home atop Russian Hill, featuring a top-floor studion with big skylights, redwood walls and a panoramic view of San Francisco Bay. It became a favourite gathering place for regional painters, visiting artists and art patrons. While collections of Richardson's work are held privately and at the Fine Arts Museum of San Francisco and the Oakland Museum, much of her work was lost in two disasters. Following the San Francisco earthquake of 1906, fires burned many of the homes whose owners had commissioned portraits by Richardson and, following a 1912 show of her work at the Grafton Galleries in London more paintings were lost while being shipped home on the Titanic. A long time friend of Henry and Juliette Ross, benefactors of the Ross Memorial Museum in St. Andrews, New Brunswick, Richardson did 25th anniversary portraits of the couple in 1920 (one of Henry 76.648 and two of Juliette 76.649, 76.650). Three other paintings by Richardson are also in the collection (RR 88.70, RR 90.83, 76.266)
