Album of 37 Oil Paintings and Watercolors of Primarily England [D.L. & A.C. Miller. June-July 1920]
1920. Full Leather. Very Good. By various hands. The album bears the date of 1920 but the artwork presumably would probably have been collected over time, either before or after that date, or a bit of both. The name of Miller is on the front cover, but that is probably the name of the owner and compiler of the album and does not explain much beyond that. The quality is various, as is the style, with the unifying element that they are all relating to lovely scenery of the countryside, the small town, the seaside in the South of England, Yorkshire, perhaps elsewhere in England, and at least one or two from the Continent (France, Holland). Shipwrecks, an aqueduct, craggy coastline are among the more interesting subjects. The album is 19 by 26, oblong, with the postcard-sized watercolors mounted onto heavy card stock leaves. Generally the places depicted are not in and of themselves famous, but almost all are the quintessence of the English landscape. Some scattered light foxing in the margins
