We bought these two tiles with some other Richmond pieces and at the time, I had no idea who Bess Whitridge was. Shaun Dengworth of the Richmond Art Museum was kind enough to give me a brief 411 on her and the kooky ceramic painting movement that seemed to be taking the art world by storm for a second, around the turn of the century. These pieces, 6” painted tiles, are very typical of Whitridge’s output.
