1667, Jan 121745, May 28
an English artist, collector of drawings, and writer on art, working almost entirely as a portrait-painter in London. Richardson was even more influential as a writer than as a painter according to Samuel Johnson. In 1722, Richardson published with his son, also Jonathan (1694–1771), An Account of Some of the Statues, Bas-Reliefs, Drawings, and Pictures in Italy (1722). The book was compiled by Richardson the elder using material gathered by his son whilst touring Italy in 1721. This was a very popular book and was used by young men as a basis for their Grand Tour.
