The Official Website of Richard Eurich R.A.


May 2022
The new Richard Eurich site is nearly ready.

At its core is an online catalogue raisonné featuring nearly 2000 works and their provenance (over 1300 of which are illustrated) along with commentary from galleries, critics and insights from the family.

Extracts from Richard's diaries have been cross-referenced with significant works and exhibitions in a explorable timeline of his life. New ways to discover his work through curated themes, and a growing sketches archive will all contribute to a significant website launch.

To be notified when it launches:

The Art of Richard Eurich, a critical monograph by Andrew Lambirth, was published by Lund Humphries on September 3rd 2020. It is available order. More details here: https://www.lundhumphries.com/collections/coming-soon/products/75467.
