FULLER, Richard Henry, artist, born in Bradford, New Hampshire, 19 October 1822; died in Chelsea, Massachusetts, 24 December 1871. He was left an orphan when seven years of age, and in 1840 went to Boston, and afterward to Chelsea, working at the trade of a cigar maker, but soon began to teach himself to draw and paint. His health failing from overwork in 1854, he spent two years in Minnesota, and on his return obtained a place on the Chelsea police force, where he was on duty at night, and painted during the day. He had excellent natural gifts, and such a retentive memory that he is said to have made a clever copy of a Lambinet, which he had seen only for a few moments. He painted landscapes exclusively. His works are represented in some of the finest collections in Boston.
