Richard Emil Miller (1875–1943), American Impressionist painter, studied at the St. Louis School of Fine Arts, and later he left for Paris to study at Academie Julian (1898–1901). He was known as a member of the “Giverny Group” - the second generation of American artists to study and paint near the home of Claude Monet. He lived in France until 1914, working in various Paris studios in the winters, and teaching his own summer classes at Giverny and Normandy. The subjects of his paintings were almost exclusively female, and he usually captured them during a moment of quiet reverie. On his return to America he became a founder, along with Edmund Greacen, of the Provincetown Artists Colony.
