Marco Richterich, Swiss (1929 - 1997)
A Swiss painter and printmaker, Marco Richterich graduated from the Kantonalen Technikum in Biel in 1946.
Concentrating upon landscapes, marine views and figure studies he began exhibiting his art internationally around 1950. Marco Richterich possessed working studios in two localities; Basel, Switzerland and Saint-Remy-de Provence, France. It is thus possible that "Cargo Ships" depicts vessels in the Port of Marseille, which is in close proximity to Saint Remy.
