Lee Greene Richards is considered one of Utah’s most important painters, and his work is sought after by collectors. Noted for his portraits and landscapes, Richards was a very successful, full-time artist. Richards’ work was widely exhibited in the United States, France and England in the early years of the 20th century, and he received an honorable mention at the Paris Salon of 1904. His paintings are in the collections of most of Utah’s museums, universities and colleges, the L.D.S. Church, and also in many private collections in Utah and elsewhere.
