Richard King (1907-1974)

Born in County Mayo, Richard King studied at Dublin Metropolitan School of Art, and was introduced to Harry Clarke by his tutor Austin Molloy. Having joined Harry Clarke's studio, he became the firm's chief designer after Clarke's death in 1931. He established his own stained glass studio in Dalkey in 1940, and many examples of his work may be found in Ireland. He also worked as a painter and illustrator.
