Collection Historical Note

William Rickarby Miller, a landscape painter and watercolorist, was born in Staindrop, England, in 1818.  He immigrated to New York in 1844, later travelling across the eastern United States, to paint landscapes.  Miller died in 1893.

The “View of Charleston, S.C.” was painted by W.R. Miller and appeared in an 1853 issue of the Illustrated News, an illustrated periodical based in New York.  The Illustrated News was absorbed by Gleason's Pictorial Drawing-Room Companions in 1853, which later became Ballou's Pictorial Drawing-Room Companion.
