  • About the artist
    Richard Eurich studied at Bradford School of Art and the Slade School. Shortly after his marriage he and his wife, an art teacher, moved to Dibden Purlieu close to Southampton Water and thus to the sea, where he lived for the rest of his life. During the Second World War Eurich became an Official War Artist, and painted scenes involving the sea, mostly of ships, but one or two of air combats. Several are now in the National Maritime Museum and the Imperial War Museum. The last major exhibition of his work, entitled 'Richard Eurich: from Dunkirk to D-Day', took place at the Imperial War Museum in 1991, which brought together almost 40 of his war paintings.
