George Richmond (1809 - 1896) was an English painter. In his youth he was a member of "The Ancients," a group of followers of William Blake. Later in life he established a career as a portrait painter. He was the son of Thomas Richmond, a miniature-painter, and was the father of painter William Blake Richmond.
