Richard Whitney, born 1946. After graduating Phi Beta Kappa from the University of New Hampshire, Whitney then trained with Sidney Willis, a Hunter student, and subsequently with R.H. Ives Gammell for five years.

As a portraitist, he has painted, among others, five state governors, a Secretary of the Navy, and a former Presidential Press Secretary.  He has also been highly successful with his landscapes, which frequently depict the area near his New Hampshire studio.

Whitney’s paintings hang in over six-hundred public and private collections; he has won over forty regional and national awards, including three separate Greenshields grants; and he has been the cover artist of American Artist magazine.  He is Chairman Emeritus of the American Society of Portrait Artists.

Whitney has figured prominently in several books, and has authored his own book, Painting the Visual Impression.
