Les Amis Bids Adieu to Richard A. Long

It was with sadness that Les Amis de Beauford Delaney learned of the passing of Richard A. Long.  He died on January 4, 2013.

Richard was a great friend of Beauford and has contributed numerous times to the richness of this blog:

He was a donor for the Beauford Delaney Gravesite Project and recently supported our application for funding for a second Beauford Delaney biography and the creation of a catalogue raisonné of Beauford's art.  He was always generous with his time and knowledge.  It was a pleasure to have gotten to know him.
