“My interest in my paintings has always been about capturing the drama and the mystery of a scene,” Paul Rickert said in a recent interview with princetoninfo.com. “It is the stage upon which the smallest to the grandest events in life are displayed.”
We are deeply saddened at the loss of legendary painter Paul Rickert this past May and send our condolences to his family and loved ones.
Paul was a celebrated and award-winning artist and a pillar of the community. He captured all of the natural elegance that Chestnut Hill and its surroundings have to offer.
Writer Stephen May described Mr. Rickert’s work as an “intense study of nature and full understanding of light, shadow and form at different times of day.”
Mr. Rickert’s work has been exhibited in museums, galleries, the Pentagon, National Constitution Center, and other venues around the country. He won prizes from the Woodmere Museum, awards from the National Arts Club and American Watercolor Society, and gold medals from the Allied Artists of America and the Franklin Mint Gallery of American Art.

We are honored to be selected as one of the purveyors of Paul’s art estate. We will be holding an exhibition of his extensive works in the Spring of 2024. Details will be forthcoming.
