Henry Miller Original Watercolor Painting.
Item Number: 84955
Rare original watercolor painting by American writer and artist Henry Miller. The painting depicts three anthropomorphic figures, one with a horse-shaped head beneath a sky dotted with one star. Signed by the artist in the lower right corner of the image, “Henry Miller 8/63.” In fine condition. Matted and framed, the entire piece measures 21 inches by 18.5 inches.
In addition to his contributions to literature, American writer and artist Henry Miller produced a significant body of watercolor paintings and published several books on the field. Unlike writing, which Miller considered work, he regarded painting as a means to recharge and relax, and even used his watercolors to barter for household supplies and other services. Many of Miller's paintings feature horses and horse-like figures reminiscent of the Etruscan ceramic paintings he admired at the Louvre during his time living and working in Paris.
