Paul A. Richardson, 67, a Center City radiologist and philanthropist who loved music, photography, and racing sports cars, died Monday, May 27, of cardiac arrest at his second home in Wrightstown, Bucks County. Born in Manchester, England, Dr. Richardson went to medical school in England and then came to the United States, where he completed specialty studies at Cornell and New York Universities. In 1977, he was at New York Presbyterian Hospital when he met Linda DiNubile, a Philadelphian working in New York as a bank officer.

Mighty photographers from tiny snapshooters grow, said some famous philosopher. Ansel Adams, I think. In any case, sometimes the best place to assess the future of an endeavor is in the schools where its young practitioners reside. And photography's future appears quite rosy when viewed within the walls of several Philadelphia art schools and colleges. Also on view is the unsteady relationship of the "art" of photography to the rest of the "art" world. Nowhere is the public attitude toward a definition of art more splintered than in the realm of photography.

The Philadelphia Museum of Art has acquired more than 3,000 photographic images by the pioneering modernist Paul Strand, catapulting the museum into the front ranks of worldwide photography meccas, and creating the greatest single repository of Strand's work anywhere. The acquisition, made through gifts and a purchase agreement with the New York-based Aperture Foundation, is expected to be announced Thursday. "It's a landmark in terms of our holdings of photography," said Timothy Rub, museum director.

Michael Morrill, a prominent Pittsburgh abstract painter, is introduced at Seraphin Gallery in his first Philadelphia solo. A teacher of studio art at the University of Pittsburgh, the Yale-trained Morrill became an artist when the reductive aesthetic of the 1970s, not the more austere minimalism of the 1960s, was emerging and combining itself with painterly enrichment - something that characterizes his distinctive handling of this method. I'd say Morrill keeps half a foot in the reductive camp, while his paintings emphasize their expressive option with brilliance.

Art has been in City Hall for more than a year. No, the mayor's real name isn't Arthur Wilson Goode. We mean Art, the commodity, the phenomenon, the visual treat. That's what's hanging in several magnificent glass cases on the second and fourth floors of our venerable seat of government. "Art in City Hall," coordinated by Katherine Stiles Cogan of the city's office of arts and culture, is the first municipal gallery in Philadelphia. Open juried shows, curated by Philadelphia cultural institutions, are held four times a year to attract work from Philadelphia-area artists.
