Stunning and beautiful oil on board, California Plein Air landscape, by American Impressionist painter, Richard E. Miller, (1875-1943). 

Richard E. Miller ((March 22, 1875 – January 23, 1943) was an American Impressionist painter and a member of the Giverny Colony of American Impressionists. Miller was primarily a figurative painter, known for his paintings of women posing languidly in interiors or outdoor settings. Miller grew up in St. Louis, studied in Paris, and then settled in Giverny. Upon his return to America, he settled briefly in Pasadena, California, and then in the art colony of Provincetown, Massachusetts, where he remained for the rest of his life. Miller was a member of the National Academy of Design in New York and an award-winning painter in his era, honored in both France and Italy and a winner of France’s Legion of Honor. 
   

   Of his classic American Impressionist paintings, production is divided between works that were done in Paris, usually in darker tonalities, the brightly colored works done in Giverny, a brief but productive period in Pasadena, and then his years in Provincetown, Massachusetts.
   Miller painted landscapes on occasion, but they are rare in Miller's artistic production. The women in his paintings were often depicted looking in a mirror or with a necklace in their hands, doing some sort of activity to keep them from being completely idle. The art historian William Gerdts, who has written most extensively on the American Impressionist movement, compared Miller to his friend, Frederick Frieseke: "Miller almost always stressed drawing and structure more than his colleague. The models he chose were quite distinct from Frieseke's, more poignant and lovely, less in the Renoir mode."Late in his career, his work turned darker in the palette and more somber in the subject and these paintings are not in the same demand as the sunnier depictions of idle women.

California Plein Air Landscape
Oil on Composite Board Panel
Partially signed in the lower center, ("RM), signed R. Miller in red to the left, and signed faintly in the right corner. 
The painting is in its original vintage frame and has minimal issues. It is in very good condition. There were very minor scattering of paint dots the size of the head of a pin, that have had overpainting, in the very middle part of the painting; all other paint in the painting is original. 
Approximate measurements of the painting alone, without frame, are 10.5"X17". The painting is still housed in its original vintage gallery frame had a couple of minor issues of chipping, that were corrected with gold gild paint. The painting is a little smaller than the back of the frame and may need to be reseated/reset within the frame. The frame does have a few minor superficial issues. 

Estimated to have been created in approximately 1935-1940. One of the more brilliant and detailed of his Plein Air landscape paintings, the lighting aspects are spectacular. Light splashes across the landscape in vivid contrasting colors, in a vibrantly jeweled landscape.
