Artist
Henry Miller(1891-1980) known as a famous American novelist of 'Tropic of Cancer' is also a painter who left about 3,000 artworks for his whole life. In this exhibition, his main artworks painted from 1940's when he was leading and active life as the novelist until 1980 when he died, It is quite difficult to say that he was good at painting. However, his boldness tied to noting is fascinating. In his artworks, vivid colors such as red and blue are emphasized, but they are in harmony delicately. His style is not something original, but it was affected by various artists. However, we can feel praise for life through his paintings.
