Default J Miller - Artist

I wonder if anyone can please identify the artist and the subject name in the attached painting. It's an original oil on canvas which I bought recently from a charity shop.

Default jhon Miller

John Miller (1931-2002) was an English artist born in London who became famous for his idyllic representation of beach scenes in his home county of Cornwall. Most of his paintings were of the West Penwith peninsula and Tresco in the Isles of Scilly.

Default Not this John Miller (1931-2002)

Sorry, millbrae,
but your painting surely is not by this John Miller (1931-2002), English artist born in London.
He paints in a different way:

It is by this "J. Miller", who in all probability does not exist - it is a fantasy name:

Default wholesaler

hi everyone! Bought my second "j. miller" painting today at an art shop for $20. I asked where they get their art and they said they buy it wholesale. SO, pretty sure it's counterfeit made in china or somewhere. love it anyway. my signature is a little different on both of them. Im trying to research wholesale art...its a booming business for moneymakers. they use a paint by number system. oh well.

Millbrae hi, I bought in 1979 or 80 from a painter himself erin your image the resemblance is only very much bigger.
The painter from where I bought it was then about 45 years old and was called John Miller from Cornwall. I have this hanging in my house in Thailand in the Gulf of Siam in the living room. It is a wonderful picture and for me very valuable. Whatever it for others who may be. I came by chance on this Deite and had to write a Comm.
If you send me aMail on this adress : dr.unblutig@hotmail.com
I will send you some Pictures from my .

rg. Nick

Wink Another painting

I too have one of these beachside paintings.
Mine is the usual lady with young girl, and another two further away.
Gulls, foliage, yachts, umbrella - things that seem to appear in most of these.
Signed J Miller, of course.
The oil artwork is quite good, in colour selection, detail and shape of the figures. Obviously someone who can paint well.
Age - well this is not new and has been in the attic for many years.
I would rule out anything Chinese or fake. The painting is huge (1050x775mm), and on 1/8" or 3/16" wood pressboard - one with a stipple sort of finish.
So, overall not a bad painting - work on the sky is very good - a few shafts of sunlight would really make it - but a bit too much of a "girlie" painting for me, but might suit others.

Nick, you seem to know something about these - can you update your email pls? Thks.
John in Australia

Must be a few of these around.
Notice Fleabay has two on atm, a 12x16", and a 8x10" size.
Mine is 30x40", and thus a relatively massive version.
Subject matter and style is very much the same, just arranged differently. Mine has much more sky - and it's well done.
Must have been a school or group that worked on these. No evidence however of any sort of copying or faking of the famous Cornish artist J.Miller.
Also, I've asked the sellers for further info - without any replies so far.
Another thing is these paintings seem to be spread far and wide, all over the globe.
Just need patience and a bit of luck - hopefully - and we'll get some answers.

BTW my speciality is Balinese and Australian outback and buildings.

Smile J. Miller Art

I also have, what seems to be an original oil painting , by an artist J. Miller. Signature is in a different spot than mibrae's. Again, Victorian Lady on beach with grass and sand, with parasol and then lady and girl off in distance with sailboats on ocean. Very pretty. We inherited this piece from my husband's grandparents. Started this search to see if we need to insure for more than our house insurance will cover. Any ideas of the worth??

Default J. Miller Oil

I have a set of three very similar oil paintings signed by J. Miller. I purchased mine 23 years ago in South Florida from a company who sold them at home parties like Tupperware or Pampered Chef. I remember they made you feel as though they were very exclusive gallery. Mine are numbered. I purchased another one at the same party signed by Stafford. Similar style seascape without people, just seagulls. I would love to know of their value aside from what Ebay has.
