Sir William Blake Richmond

Born 10 York Street. Painter. He entered the Royal Academy in 1858, winning two silver medals. His reputation rests on his portraiture of many prominent people. His painting of the Princess of Wales however, earned Queen Victoria’s disapproval and may have contributed to his not being elected an associate of the Royal Academy. Knighted in 1897. Died Beavor Lodge, Hammersmith.
