National Centennial Exhibition of New Zealand Art Catalogue
Dorothy Kate Richmond
Miss D. K. Richmond was born in Auckland in 1861. Her father took her to England in 1874 and she studied art and music in London and Dresden. At the age of seventeen she gained a Slade Scholarship, and for two years worked under Legros at the Slade School. After a further visit to England and France she returned to New Zealand in 1903, devoting herself wholly to her art, and for many years she taught at her studio in Hill Street, Wellington. Although very versatile, Miss Richmond's main work was executed in water colours.
