Richard Godfrey Rivers (1858-1925) was a highly regarded artist and teacher. He taught at the Brisbane (Central) Technical College (1890-1910, part-time 1910-1915). His students included Harold Parker, Vida Lahey, L.J. Harvey, Daphne Mayo and Lloyd Rees. Rivers was president of the Queensland Art Society (1892-1901 and 1904-1908) and the first curator for the Queensland National Art Gallery (1895-1914). He died in 1925. In 1929 his wife, Selina (Ina) Jane Godfrey, nee Bell, (1868-1947) announced her intention to give a bequest to the Queensland National Art Gallery. The Godfrey Rivers Trust was to be used for the purchase of some pictures and in providing prizes for artists. It was the Queensland National Art Gallery's first significant endowment. The trust came to an end due to dwindling funds in 2009. During its time the Trust presented 48 works to the Queensland Art Gallery.
