Richard Emile Miller (1875-1943), Reflection, c.1910, oil on canvas, 36 x 36 inches. Brigham Young University Museum of Art, gift of A. Merlin Steed and Alice W. Steed Collection.
Today’s Artwork of the Day is a highlight from the MOA’s American collection, featuring this oil painting by American Impressionist artist Richard Emile Miller. Miller studied in Paris and also became part of the Giverny colony—a collection of artists who lived and painted near Monet’s home in Giverny, France. Miller is best known for his works depicting women, both in interior and exterior scenes. Reflection demonstrates Miller’s classic subject matter in the colorful, Impressionist style for which he was so admired.
