Dorothy (Dolla) Richmond (1861-1935) Dorothy was the daughter of James Crowe Richmond, a notable colonist and politician. James passed on his love of drawing and painting to his daughter, and his minutely detailed and finely constructed landscapes in watercolour laid the foundation of her visual education. Sent to Europe to further her education, she attended the Slade School of Fine Art, where women had equal access with men to the life model. When Dolla returned to Nelson in late 1880 she was one of a small group of New Zealand-born women to have received a professional training in art.
