Short biography
best remembered for his illustrations of works by L. Frank Baum. Richardson provided pictures for a series of schoolbooks called the Winston Readers. Richardson followed that initial work with many other book-illustration projects, including editions of the works of Hans Christian Andersen, Aesop's Fables, Mother Goose, Pinocchio, and East of the Sun and West of the Moon, plus two volumes in the series of Andrew Lang's Fairy Books. For John Heming Fry's "diatribe against modernism," The Revolt Against Beauty (1934), Richardson supplied pictures that parodied the work of Paul Gauguin and Vincent Van Gogh and characters from newspaper comic strips.
