HUGH MILLER (1911-1988)

No. 6 Patch.
Etching with aquatint. 380x303 mm; 15x12 inches, full margins. Signed and titled in pencil, lower margin. Published by the Federal Art Project WPA, New York, with the ink stamp, lower left. Circa 1935-43.

A very good impression.

Miller was a WPA printmaker who met his wife, fellow artist Blanche Grambs (1916-2010) at a printmaking workshop. Both worked for the WPA Federal Art Project in the social realist style favored at the time. The FAP gave Miller the freedom to explore new techniques in printmaking.
