Richard Merrick, the younger brother of George Merrick, was a well-known artist and was also a professor in the Art Department at the University of Miami. Known for his etchings, along with watercolor and pen and ink drawings, Merrick captured the early South Florida aesthetic in his works. This special collection of paintings, etchings and drawings has not been seen before and was released by the family to be sold to benefit the Museum.
