In addition to paintings and sculpture by Richenburg, images of art work include a rock garden that he construccted on his swimming pool deck. Exhbitions documented are retrospectives held at Colgate University and Guild Hall Musuem. In addition to Robert Richenburg and his family, photographs of people include friends, dealers, curators, his assistant, and other artists; among the artists are those represented by David Findlay Jr. Gallery. Views of places are Richenburg's boyhood home in Roslindale, MA and his house in Ithaca, NY.
Many World War II photographs taken in France and England are very small snapshots. They contain images of artwork, people, places, and miscellaneous subjects. Artwork is not by Richenburg. Images of people include Richenburg, several group shots, and other individuals, both identified and unidentified. Also found are many views of Shrivenham American University.
Additional photographs are scattered throughout the subject files (series 3), and a small number appear as enclosures with correspondence (series 2).
