So nice to hear this positive feedback on Mylo's work. I the niece and executor of Miles & Mylos Estates and have his remaining paintings and drawings and am always interested in the admirers of his work and friends, so nice to see the chat on him.
Los Penitentes Renee Ascher
We own a remarkable and huge oil painting entitled as the subject line allows, "Los Penitentes."
Woodstock was a summer stay for my family starting with my father, Ben Adler, a fine artist, at age 16. Naturally, I spent many a summer with my family who eventually bought a small house in Woodstock, across from the Little Deep. In my late 20s, I fell in love with a painting of Mylos and put a deposit on it as it was unaffordable to buy at the time with my meager salary. Then, when my my betrothed talked about a ring for our engagement, I said that I'd rather have the painting. It has graced our home for the past 36 years holding a prominent place in our living rooms. It is a remarkable work of art and I feel privileged to own it. I, too, wish there were a book of his work to have.

MYLO, a very dear friend of mine who I miss very much. I met Mylo in the early 1970's after seeing his work at a mates house in Woodstock, NY, USA. I commissioned Mylo to do a work for me, he had free range, I just wanted a redheaded woman in the subject. I was very young at the time and could barely afford it, but I did. I have a pencil sketch entitled 'Alchemic Theatre'. I love that too. I had many dinners with Mylo at his home in Woodstock, and out and about."We were good at being bad"! I moved to Santa Fe, NM where Mylo visited and met my new wife and dinner turned out to be about something that should be in his biography. After I decided to move abroad, I travel again cross country to visit Mylo and say my good byes. He pleated with me to stay the night and Im SO GLAD I decided to say yes. Now that was in 1995. Mylo is one of those people that was then and still is now, a truly inspirational man. God I miss him!!! Anyone please feel free to contact me if youd like to know more about this funny, silly, talented and just great human being. Cheers, tom-paul

I own two wonderful large oil paintings done by Mylo Quam...one is of two young girls on a carousel....so expertly painted....the other is four figures dressed in gauzey materials three of the figures have wings...I bought them in Key West over 15 years ago. Would love to know more about the man.

I met Mylo several times when he was exhibiting at the Clark Whitney Gallery in Lenox, MA. I bought one of his Sabastian series - fabulous piece, wonderful sense of lighting. Very hot on one side of the figure and cool on the other. He showed several series at the Clark Whitney, including Ship of Fools and Popessa. Very intricate work, thought provoking, superb use of color.
I visited with him learned lots.Matthew
I was living in New York for a few months at Milo Quam's estate and learned quite a bit. I only met him as a young child and have no clear recolection of the meetings. My uncle was good friends with him and after staying with Miles Baron and Otto Klotz for the summer I learned Quite a bit about him. His paintings are amazing and they are dissapearing fast not to collectors but they are molding and getiing wet. These paintings are filled with so much. It is sad that they will be no more.
I love his work as well. I have four of his drawings- sketches for his paintings. I got them at Valsani. I really think someone should do a book of his work. I would help.
i love his work and already own 4 large early period oils and 3 works in pencil,i would be happy to hear from others who also enjoy and own his work
