Richards was born in Philadelphia in 1833. He studied at the studio of the German-born painter Paul Weber at the Pennsylvanian Academy of the Fine Arts. Weber was associated with the Hudson River School, an American ‘Romantic’ art movement inspired by the American wilderness. Initially he was mostly recognised for his landscapes, but around 1867 he started to turn to the sea and coastline for inspiration.
