Sisterships

1980, fine art print on canvas. One of Joe Richards's larger paintings, The Storm is an example of how his technique changed in his later paintings while his dramatic angular abstract style stayed the same. This made his move into pointillism very bold and unique.

Joe Richards' Artwork

Storm

1952 fine art print on canvas. Herman Melville was by far Joe Richards' favorite writer and the inspiration for this painting. Richards' love of nocturnal sea themes and his use of dark colors influenced the choice of the black whale instead of the white whale found in Moby Dick.

1960, fine art print on canvas. One of many “Sister Ships” Joe Richards painted in his lifetime, this depiction of Princess sailing at night with another Friendship sloop was possibly his favorite theme. When asked why an artist would paint the same painting more than once he would reply, “How many sunflowers did Van Gogh paint?”
