Ambassador of the Week: Richard Burke Jones

Richard Burke Jones has painted a number of high-profile portraits as well as historical paintings — most often crow’s nest views of 18th and 19th-century towns, as well as his hometown of Newburyport, MA, where he has lived since 1950.

His work is in a number of private collections as well as The Newport Museum and the Custom House Maritime Museum. He has had articles in many periodicals including the Cape Cod Magazine, the Merrimack Valley Magazine, the Portsmouth Herald and the Boston Globe.

“While making our annual trip to Monhegan Island, Maine, I painted the Red House (watercolor, 11 x 15 in.) from below on Swim Beach,” he says.
