Services for Benjamin Bernard Richardson, an East Baltimore screen painter whose work was featured in a 1988 film, will be held at 1 p.m. tomorrow at the Ambrose Funeral Home on Sulphur Spring Road in Arbutus.
Mr. Richardson, who was 87, died Friday at Summit Nursing Home in Catonsville after a stroke.
Mr. Richardson was born in Essex, England, and came to the United States with his parents when he was 6 months old.
He lived most of his life in East Baltimore and began his work as a window screen painter four decades ago to make a few extra dollars. The art form, which flourished in the 1930s and 1940s, was the subject of the 1988 film "American Folk Arts," a joint production of the Baltimore Office of Folklore and the Painted Screen Society, and Mr. Richardson's work was used in the film.
