Richter studied from 1905 to 1907 at the Royal School of Applied Arts in Dresden, then received a technical training course and then studied from 1910 to 1913 at the Dresden Art Academy with Richard Müller and Carl Bantzer .

In 1913 he moved to Kötzschenbroda in Auenweg 5 as a freelance painter and etcher , where he lived and worked as a freelance artist until his death. The house was built in 1912 according to his own designs.

Since his parents were already from the area, Richter expressed his attachment to the landscape from the 1920s by calling himself Richter-Lößnitz .

Richter-Lößnitz painted many pictures of his home landscape in rather quiet tones, as well as portraits and figurative drawings. But he also worked as a facade and interior designer, book illustrator and commercial artist. The Meissner porcelain factory Teichert received drafts for its products from Richter-Lößnitz.

Works by Richter-Lößnitz can be found in the Dresden Kupferstichkabinett and in the holdings of the Saxon Army Museum .

The painter and graphic artist Hans Theo Richter met Georg Richter-Lößnitz in 1922 and was allowed to print his first etchings in his workshop.
