 A sculptor and painter, Charles Douglas Richardson (1853 - 1932) studied with Roberts and Streeton in London, as well as at the NGV School, and was closely associated with many Heidelberg painters early in his career. Richardson became more established as a sculptor, and shared a studio with his wife and fellow artist Margaret Baskerville. He was well respected as a sculptor, and became foundation president of the Yarra Sculptors Society and later the president of the Victorian Arts Society. Richardson's work is represented in the National Gallery of Australia, Art Gallery of South Australia, and several regional galleries.
