Richardson’s easy, bright Impressionist style is best displayed in his plein air oil paintings. From Main-Street shows his successful combination of color and form to make a satisfying overall composition. As is true with most Impressionist works it is appealing both as a marker of a specific place and time, and as an abstract pattern of light and color. This was painted in 1925, just a year after the Easy Street Gallery opened in Nantucket—an establishment that reflected the thriving artist’s colony scene for two decades. Richardson was a frequent visitor to Nantucket, and exhibited this and other works at the famous Easy Street Gallery.
