Painter and teacher, born in Isleworth, Middlesex. He studied at Kingston upon Thames School of Art, 1940–3, teachers including Raymond Coxon; in 1946–50 with David Bomberg at Borough Polytechnic, which markedly influenced his style; and in 1946 was a foundation-member of the Borough Group. Between 1947–9 Richmond, who then painted as Peter Richmond, participated in Borough Group exhibitions at Archer and Arcade Galleries and regularly at the Group’s own gallery in Little Newport Court. Early in the 1950s he moved first to France, then Spain, in 1954 joining Bomberg as assistant in his school. In 1970 Richmond became director of art at the International School, Spain. From 1979 Richmond lived in East Rounton, North Yorkshire, becoming a foundation member of Rounton Design.
