PORTRAIT OF SID RICHARDSON BY PETER HURD


Peter Hurd
Portrait of Sid Richardson
1958
Tempera on panel
32 inches x 48 inches
This painting portrays Sid Richardson at his home on San Jose Island, off Rockport, Texas. The herds of cattle and horses tell us something about the subject, Sid Richardson, while the likeness speaks volumes about character. Hurd considered Richardson an “old friend” and described him as both colorful and amusing. His affectionate likeness also reveals a man of substance and vision. At sixty-seven, Richardson sits, self-assured and comfortable. His warmth comes through, though there is pensive quality to this portrait made the year before he died.
