Counting the Daisies



Agnes Richmond was born in Allton, Illinois, in 1870 and studied first at the St. Louis School of Fine Arts. She came to New York in 1888 and attended the Art Students League, where she took classes with John Henry Twatchman (1853-1902), Walter Appleton Clark (1876-1906), and Kenyon Cox (1856-1919).1 She taught at the League from 1910 to 1914, where she was tremendously influential in the early careers of several notable female artists, including Katharine Schmidt (1895-1978).2 She married the artist Winthrop Turney (1884-1965), and the two spent their summers painting in Gloucester, Massachusetts, and Mountainville, New York. During the academic year they lived in Brooklyn.

Richmond exhibited extensively, including regular showings at the National Academy of Design. Her paintings appear in several leading collections of American women artists, including the Edgemarle Collection, the Sellars Collection, and the Neville-Strass Collection.
