Richard McLean (b. 1934, Hoquiam, Washington) is known for his depictions of show and race horses. Since the 1970s McLean has used his own photographs as source material. Recently, he has concentrated on landscapes in which horses are incidental details. To date, he has completed 203 paintings, many of which are held in notable collections including Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, Smithsonian Institution in Washington, DC, and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. McLean received his B.F.A. from California College of Arts and Crafts and his M.F.A. from Mills College.
