Addison Thomas Millar (American, 1860-1913) - Oil on Board of a Gentleman Smoking a Pipe.
Signed lower right, "A. T Millar." This is a very rich and warm portrait, and the mastery of the shading and lighting in the painting makes the gentleman look illuminated as if he is sitting in front of a fire. The board of the painting is in excellent condition, no missing paint.
Millar studied art in New York and in Paris, and with William Merritt Chase. Millar exhibited in Philadelphia, Boston, and Chicago galleries, and was a member of the Society of American Artists and the National Academy of Design. His paintings hang in the Detroit Institute of Arts, the Library of Congress. the New York Public Library, and the Rhode Island School of Design. Millar was a member of New York's Salmagundi Club. Millar died in 1913 in one of the earliest fatal car accidents.
Beautiful and ornate gilt frame with some wear on the frame below the painting, and damage, that had been repaired, to the gilt frame scrolls and corners.
On the back of the frame, written on the wood is "Signed Thomas Addison Millar."
