ALFRED JACOB MILLER, attributed
(1810-1874)



The lost greenhorn

Oil on canvas, 46 x 67 cm

Provenance: ambassador Gerardo Carante.
Born in Baltimore, Alfred Jacob Miller first studied painting in America and then, from 1832, for a period in Europe. In 1837 he moved to New Orleans where he met William Drummond Stewart who asked him to accompany him on a journey into the interior of the country to document that experience. On his return, Miller began to produce a large number of watercolors and canvases with subjects relating to Native Americans, a production that was remarkably successful making him one of the greatest exponents of this genre. The painting presented here is one of several versions of a composition that Miller conceived precisely following the trip mentioned above.
