Addison T. Millar (1860-1913)

Painter and etcher Addison Thomas Millar was born in Warren, Ohio in 1860, his early studies including work with John Bell, an area artist. Millar must have been a young artist of evident talent, at least from the point of view of the sponsors of the magazine, The Youth’s Companion, for they awarded him prizes for three consecutive years, 1877-1879, when Millar was only in his late teens. Millar moved to Cleveland in 1879 and New York City in 1883. In the former city he studied with DeScott Evans and began painting portraits as well as landscapes. In New York, he worked at the Art Students League, studying etching and painting. Millar was a pupil of landscape painter William M. Chase during 1892 at the Shinnecock School. His exhibitions at this time included Philadelphia, Boston and Chicago galleries, as well as the Society of American Artists and the National Academy of Design. In 1894, Millar studied in Paris under Boldini, Benjamin Constant and Henri Martin, and exhibited at the Salon Champs de Mars. Millar painted in Holland the following summer. In 1895, he studied again with Chase, this time in Spain. Millar was killed in a car accident in 1913. He had resided in New York City, where he exhibited his work at the National Academy of Design. He was a member of the Salmagundi Club and Silvermine Artists Guild.
