Born 1947. Art historian, broadcaster and curator who discovered Kettle’s Yard in his first year as an undergraduate at the University of Cambridge in 1965.
Richard feels that Henri Gaudier-Brzeska (a key artist in the Kettle’s Yard collection) revolutionised sculpture in Britain, which informed his book on Vorticism. When he left Cambridge in 1969 he became art critic for the Evening Standard. He kept in touch with Jim Ede until 1973, when Jim moved to Edinburgh. At the time of interview, Richard was art critic for The Times.
