Richard Schmid was born in Chicago, Illinois in 1934. His earliest artistic influence came from his maternal grandfather, Julian Oates, an architectural sculptor. Richard’s initial studies in landscape painting, figure drawing, and anatomy began at the age of twelve and continued into classical techniques under William H. Mosby at the American Academy of Art in Chicago.

  1. I have recently found a work by Mosby at an estate sale. It is almost life-size of a male nude .It looks alive , and I see why those artists are successful who studied under William H Mosby .
