Richard Buckner Gruelle (February 22, 1851, Cynthiana, Kentucky – November 4, 1914, Indianapolis, Indiana) was an American Impressionist painter who was a member of the Hoosier Group of Landscape Painters in Indiana.
He moved to Norwalk, Connecticut, in 1910. He was self-taught and the only one of the Hoosier Group painters without European training. He started painting portraits and domestic interiors before he turned to landscapes.
Gruelle’s son, Johnny Gruelle became famous as a commercial artist and creator of Raggedy Ann.
