Addison T. Millar (1860-1913)

Etcher and landscape painter Addison Thomas Millar was born in Warren, Ohio, and first studied with John Bell in Warren and DeScott Evans in nearby Cleveland before moving to New York in 1883. There he attended painting and etching classes at the Art Students League and worked with William Merritt Chase at his Shinnecock Summer School on Long Island.  Millar eventually went abroad to Paris, enrolling at the Académie Julian in 1895 under Benjamin Constant, and travelling throughout Europe with stays in Holland and Spain.

Millar exhibited at the National Academy during the 1890s and at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts from 1898-1902. He also took part in annual exhibitions at the Art Institute of Chicago and the Boston Art Club, and was a member of the Silvermine Guild in Connecticut and the Salmagundi Club. Sadly, his career was cut short when he was struck and killed by an automobile in 1913, but today examples of his work can be found at the Smithsonian American Art Museum and the Butler Institute of American Art in Youngstown, Ohio, among other institutions.
