Alnwick Castle from woods above the castle. From a group illustrating castles on the border of England and Scotland. Thomas Miles Richardson, (1784-1848), succeeded father as master of St Andrew's Charity School, Newcastle, 1806. In 1813 he resigned his school position to devote his life to painting. Initially his work attracted little local interest, and he found it difficult to make a living as an artist. However, from 1814, he began to gain a wide reputation as a result of his exhibiting works in London, at the Royal Academy and the British Institution.
