Peter Miller
(1939 — 2014)

Born in 1939, Peter Miller was an accomplished artist who regularly explored a number of different themes in his work. Though the artist was a gifted landscape painter who often explored urban and interior scenes, he is best remembered for his works inspired by the Golden Era of motor cars and motor racing. Miller was particularly celebrated for his paintings depicting the Rolls-Royce and Bentley motor cars of the 1920s and 1930s. His ability to evoke a sense of movement in his work, paired with his excellent grasp of light and shadow, prompted his reputation as one of the most eminent motor artists to grow significantly throughout his career.

 

Though his paintings of popular motor cars are among his most recognisable works, Miller was an accomplished train, engine and aeroplane painter. His motoring works regularly featured figurative and architectural elements in the background which displayed his wide-ranging talent to great effect. The artist died in 2014.
