Footnotes

  • John Miller was a contemporary artist who lived most of his adult life in Cornwall. He was born in London in 1931. After a visit to West Cornwall in the mid-fifties he returned to live there in 1958. Following National Service, John Miller studied architecture and was articled to church architects in 1961. He soon moved on to painting. Visiting the Isles of Scilly led to his beach paintings, and after living at Sancreed for many years he painted from a house on the beach at Lelant, St Ives, where some of his most evocative paintings were done. He became a member of the Newlyn Society of Artists in 1961. In 1964, he was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts. In 1989, he published an autobiography, “Leave Tomorrow Behind”. John Miller died on 23rd July 2002, at his home in Penzance.
