Richard Hayley Lever (1876-1958)
Richard Hayley Lever was born in Adelaide, Australia on September 18, 1876. He studied at the Prince Alfred Cultural Institute in Adelaide, the N.Y.C. Art Students League, the Académie Julian (being influence by Van Gogh) in Paris and in London. He first arrived in England circa 1900 and painted for several years in St. Ives, where he became an important member of the artist's colony. He was a prolific artist and traveled throughout Europe, painting in a confident, bold fashion. Some of his finest works of that period were painted in the port villages of Douarnenez and Concarneau, Brittany, directly across the English Channel from St. Ives. At his studio in St. Ives he painted with fellow artist Ernest Lawson, who persuaded Lever to emigrate to America. He went to America in 1912 and remained there for the rest of his life. He was a member of the American Painters and Etchers, National Arts Club, California Academy of Fine Arts, Royal British Academy (London), Associate (1925) and Full Academician (1933) at the National Academy (NYC), the Royal Institute of Oil Painters (London), the Royal West of England Academy; the Contemporaries and the New Society of Artists. He died in Mt. Vernon, NH in 1958. Richard Hayley Lever
It’s not what an artist paints—it’s how he paints it. Paintings may be abstract or realistic—it doesn’t matter. The greatest art of all is great enough to cover any method . . . If there’s enthusiasm in you, nothing on earth stops you. Painting is a joyful agony—a labor of love. (Hayley Lever, quoted in Lolita Flockhart, Art and Artists of New Jersey (Somerville, N.J.: C. P. Hoagland Co., 1938), 88)
