Richard Gay Somerset (1848–1928) was the son of the sub-editor and sometimes art critic of the Old Manchester Courier. He enjoyed travelling and made sixteen trips up and down the Mediterranean in coasting steamers. On these journeys he preferred to paint subjects with an archaeological interest. He was also an excellent landscape painter. His work was highly praised by the Manchester Courier's art critic when he made the following report on the R.M.I's exhibition on Modern Art in 1877

Somerset was an eminent member of the Manchester School of Painters, an original member of the Royal Cambrian Academy becoming its vice-president in 1919 and was one of the oldest members of the Manchester Academy of Fine Arts
