Biography  
Ralph Miller


Born in Cincinnati, OH on Sept. 7, 1858. Miller lived in Kansas City for several years and specialized in still lifes during his early career. Except for criticism and pointers on improving his technique from George C. Bingham, he remained a self-taught painter. Miller lived in New Mexico in the 1880s and settled in Los Angeles in 1893. He remained a resident of Los Angeles except for a period in the mid-1920s when he lived on the Monterey Peninsula. Traveling the California coast as far north as Mendocino, he painted coastals and landscapes, and made many painting excursions into the mountains and deserts of Colorado, Arizona and New Mexico. Miller died in Los Angeles on Dec. 14, 1945. Exh: Kanst Gallery (LA), 1909; Steckel Gallery
