We are proud to introduce you to a world of fine art filled with the light of the Caribbean by one of the region's most respected artists, Sir Roland Richardson.

Born to a family whose French Caribbean heritage dates back to the 1700's on the island of St. Martin, Mr. Richardson has recorded his culture over the past forty years with his paintbrush and palette.
He paints pictures “en plein air”, working in the field, always from a living subject,

and while his roots are in the Caribbean, universities around the world are teaching aspiring artists about Roland Richardson's contributions to the realm of contemporary Plein Air Impressionism.

Sir Richardson has often been referred to as the “Father of Caribbean Impressionism” in reputed periodicals that include Caribbean Travel & Life, Island Magazine, Robb Report, the Washington Post, American Airlines Latitudes, and Elle. His mastery of multiple mediums include oil, watercolor, pastel, charcoal and extensive fine print-making in etching, engraving, aquatint, mezzotint, woodcut and drypoint.


Over 100 one-man and group shows in Museums, major Trade Centers and Fine Art Galleries have honored Roland Richardson's work in public exhibition, and while he remains devoted to a simple life of genuine focus, his artwork is rapidly earning the recognition and respect of art collectors and appreciators worldwide.

History is in the making as we enter the 21st century, bringing forth a school of art born only in the last fifty years, indigenous to this region of idealic light and abundant color. 

The School of Caribbean art now touches points all over the world, bright beacons of inspired imagery communicating a world, a culture, unknown to most only a half century ago.

How many have learned of the existence of the coralita, the soursop, mangoes and madras, the brilliant flamboyant trees bejeweling our islands, having seen them first in paintings from our Caribbean world?

We honor one among us, one man who has committed his whole life to this important world of communication through art, St. Martin’s native son leader and patriarch of Caribbean art,
Sir Roland Richardson.
