Artwork Biography

View full artist profile

Richard Hayley Lever settled in the USA in 1911. He trained in Paris and England, where he frequented the St Ives Group and began painting seascapes, a genre with which he later achieved widespread renown. His reputation was quickly established after his arrival in America, and his work featured in numerous exhibitions prior to the Wall Street Crash of 1929. He obtained American citizenship and taught at the Art Students' League from 1919 to 1931. He was the winner of the Carnegie Foundation prize in 1914. His early work was profoundly influenced by that of Vincent van Gogh.
