Description Exhibitions Provenance Inscription Credit
Description After his return to Baltimore in 1842, Miller bought a farm, "Lorraine," on the Franklin Turnpike five miles west of the city. This sketch may have been drawn during a ride between the farm and the city. Alfred Jacob Miller was a prolific sketcher. He filled many journals with drawings and captions from the time he was studying in Paris and Rome (1833) until the 1870's. The varied interests of Miller are clearly reflected in these sketches: rural sites, studies after Old Master paintings, illustrations of literature, and comical scenes and characters. This sketch comes from the family album of L. Vernon Miller, which contains works that have passed down through the Miller family directly from the artist.
