SIA Inspiration: Richard E. MillerPosted: May 11, 2015
For this week’s SIA, I picked “The Green Cage” by American Impressionist, Richard E. Miller:
I’ve never heard of Miller before, but when a reader, Mike, emailed me about this painting, I thought it would make a perfect inspiration for some late spring/early summer outfits, with its soft shades of green, pink, white, and purple. Yes, it’s by a male artist, and we are trying to feature more female artists here, but Miller was known for his sunny, idyllic depictions of women, so I figure it’s still a good addition to SIA. Also, it’s a part of Akron Art Museum’s “Inside Out” program, which displays replicas of the museum’s collection around the city. You can see the painting on location here – how cool is that?
So remember to send me your outfit photos and/or posts by next Monday, May 18th. Enjoy!
