When freelance curator Caroline Krzesinska gave a slide show and talk about Richard Eurich at Leeds Art Gallery (March 23, 2024), several members from Richard’s extended family came along to the event.

Among them was Richard’s younger daughter Philippa who travelled from Southampton and three generations of her cousins all local to Leeds.

Linda on the left is Philippa’s first cousin. She is the daughter of Evelyn Imrie, Richard’s younger sister. On the right is Linda’s daughter Nicky. And next to Linda is Abbie, Nicky’s daughter. Back in the 1930s Evelyn was responsible for introducing her young friend Mavis to her brother Richard. They fell in love, married and had three children. Philippa is the youngest. Mavis’s great-niece Annie Glover also came to the lecture from her home in Morecambe.

Art runs through the family. Abbie is a pyrographer (https://www.instagram.com/reverie_pyrography/). Linda’s son Simon is a landscape painter, living in the Yukon in Canada (https://www.simonjamesgilpin.com/).
