About This Item

1944. Signed. MILLER, Henry. Original watercolor. No place, 1944. One leaf, measuring 9 by 12 inches; handsomely matted and framed, entire piece measures 14-1/2 by 18-1/2 inches. $6200.Original watercolor of human figure standing in a town, featuring a presentation inscription: ""For Cecilia Draeger from Henry Miller 1944.""Miller began painting watercolors in the 1920s and continued throughout his life. After spending years in Europe, Miller moved to Big Sur in 1942, where he lived a modest existence. This watercolor, painted during the Big Sur years, depicts a person with a gentle facial expression and closed eyes with a town in the background and a blue sun overhead. Although Tropic of Cancer and Tropic of Capricorn were published in Paris in the 1930s, it was not until the easing of censorship in the early 1960s that his work was published in the United States. Fine condition.
