Artist: Frederick de Bourg Richards
Title: Beach Scene
Media: Oil on canvas, 18 x 36 1/8 inches
Description: Signed and dated at lower right:"FDeB.Richards./1890"

Richardsís first documented New Jersey landscape was Salt Marshes at Atlantic City in October (location unknown), which he exhibited at the Pennsylvania Academyís annual show in 1878. Atlantic City had become an even greater tourist destination the following year because of the fare war between the Camden and Atlantic Railroad and the new Philadelphia and Atlantic Railroad. Sometime during the late 1870s Richards took a studio in Anglesea (renamed North Wildwood in 1906) and exhibited a number of paintings, etchings, and watercolors of that area and Hereford Inlet at the Pennsylvania Academy between 1883 and 1889.
