Richard QUICK

A feature published in The Cornishman (1883), entitled 'The Painting School of the Royal Bavarian Academy, Munich' was credited as 'by Richard Quick, a Cornish Student at the Academy' . The dates and references are correct to assume that this is a Bristol-born painter (J&G) who studied at South Kensington School of Art and the Munich Academy (4 Years).

He went on to become the Curator of the Bristol Art Gallery and the curator of the Russell-Cotes Art Gallery and Museum, Bournemouth (1921-32). His addresses were in London & Munich (1882), after which the above article was published in Penzance, and from Wolverhampton in 1889.
