Born in Alton, Ilinois, Agnes Millen Richmond (1870-1964) studied at the St. Louis School of Fine Arts, before moving to New York in 1888. She was in New York City, when many female artists were interested in socialism & women's sufferage. Richmond was a member of the original Woodstock colony, & with her husband, artist Winthrop Turney, spent summers painting in Gloucester, MA. & Mountainville, NY. Richmond specialized in portraits of women from a variety of social backgrounds, usually portrayed in the bright colors of the fashion of their time. Richmond's women seem comfortable in their dress & their surroundings.
