Our Fine Paintings Sale will take place in Spring 2017. The sale will include the iconic self portrait by James Miller RSA (1893-1987), The Artist in His Studio. The Sale will include a collection of approximately twenty watercolours also by Miller, making this the largest sale of his work at auction to date. Born in Glasgow, he lived for many years in Dunvegan, Skye. He is well known for his magnificent architectural landscapes and his figure paintings which show a firm, clear hand and perception of the sitter’s character. His self portrait, The Artist in His Studio is a particularly fine example of his figurative work.
