Richard Humphry was born in 1942.

He had three solo exhibitions in London and participated in group shows in Europe and America. Also at the I.C.A. both in Dover Street and later in The Mall.

In 1966 he was invited by Sir Roland Penrose and Roberto Matta to exhibit with all the major surrealists in the Museum of Santa Barbara, California. His painting hung alongside the works of Dali, Magritte, Tanguy, Dorothea Tanning and others. He has authorised this website in response to a number of requests from collectors and interested parties.
