The Richardson Studio
The Richardson Studio was founded in the 20s by John Richardson and produced the artwork for primarily Paramount posters through to the early 60s. Their posters are probably the finest examples of the intricate hand litho process with their unique style and striking graphic art and they are now very hard to find.
This exhibition is probably the largest single display of Richardson Studio posters ever seen in one place. I have included some examples from my own collection and some images also appear with thanks to Bruce Hershenson, Grey Smith, Glenn Taranto, from his Richard Dix collection, Craig Kennett, Ben Wadley, and other private collectors. These posters are not for sale although I do have a small selection available on this website
and in my eBay Store
There are a number of avid collectors of Richardson Studio posters including Brian Arnold who is also putting together an exhibition that will no doubt feature a number of additional posters not seen on this website. It is simply impossible to include examples of every Richardson Studio poster but my aim is to show collectors a selection of the wonderful artwork of these posters.

I hope you enjoy the exhibition.
