The New International Encyclopædia/Miller, Alfred Jacob

MIL'LER, Alfred Jacob (1810-74). An American portrait, figure, and landscape painter, born in Baltimore. He studied under Thomas Sully, and in Paris and Italy. He made several sketches when in the Rocky Mountains in 1837 with Sir William Drummond Stewart, which are of value. The originals are in Murthley Castle, and there are replicas in water color in the Walters collection in Baltimore. The remainder of his life was spent principally in Baltimore, where he painted many portraits. He also copied the old masters with some success.
