Probably Big Sur Ca.. 1944. [Probably Big Sur, Ca.]. 1944.. Original watercolor on paper, 27.5 x 35cm, floated on mat, framed under glass, in shadow-box style. Fine. A vintage, highly characteristic watercolor from the period of Miller's residence in Big Sur, when he actively solicited financial assistance in exchange for his paintings to enable him to survive and continue writing (ref: AN OPEN LETTER TO ALL AND SUNDRY, etc etc). The dominant colors are orange, pink, green and white, with accents in red and black, within a black and green wash border. The painting depicts two human figures against a green field, within a white irregular "protective" oval on the left side, isolated against a larger orange and pink background, juxtaposed with a more hostile appearing form on the right within its own shell of jagged concentric ovals. Signed in full and dated in the lower right.
