Two Boys with Raised Sticks as Man and Dogs Peer from a Window


Description Provenance Inscription Credit
Description Baltimore artist, 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 interests of Miller are clearly reflected in these sketches: the theater (a large portion being quick figure drawings of the Ravel Pantomime Troupe), childhood memories, Baltimore scenery, and witty scenes of characters. (See The Walters Art Gallery Bulletin, April, 1969, Vol. 21, No. 7, Pages 3-4). This sketch comes from a Vernon Miller Family Album.
Provenance Inherited by L. Vernon Miller, Baltimore [1]; inherited by Katherine B. Miller, Baltimore, 1965; given to Decatur Miller, Baltimore, 1982; given to Walters Art Museum, 1994. [1] passed directly from the artist down through his family.
Inscriptions [Label] Cole Theo Anderson & his dogs; [Label] farm on Frederick Road
Credit Gift of Mr. and Mrs. Decatur H. Miller, 1994
