Art Brokerage: Richard K. Loud American Artist: b. 1942. Richard K. Loud is from Quincy Bay in Massachusetts. As the son of a master shipwright who built boats for both profit and pleasure, he was exposed early on to the complexities and beauties of boat design and construction. After working his way through Northeastern University as a draftsman for the Penn Central Railroad, he served as a deckhand on a 114 foot motor yacht, and later assisted his father designing and building yachts. Yet, all this time he was constantly drawing and painting the vessels around him. His dramatic paintings have earned him awards in the 1988, 1989, and 1990 Mystic International Exhibitions as well as special mention in the December 1990 Yachting magazine. In 1991 he was commissioned to paint the H.M.S. Rose, which was displayed on board the vessel during the Eastern Seaboard Tour of the Bill of Rights. The painting became a part of the permanent collection of the H.M.S. Rose Foundation in Bridgeport, Connecticut. His paintings of clipperships and traditional sailing yachts express a sailor's deep affection for the craft; the brisk afternoons, and gentle breezes, in a way that everyone who has spent time at sea, or wished they had, can relate to. Mr. Loud is a member of the American Society of Marine Artists. Listings wanted by Art Brokerage.
