If he hadn't died in 1956 at just 37, Dunedin's Ralph Miller could have emerged as one of New Zealand's best-known 20th -century artists. A new book by his son, Brian Miller, reinforces this view.
MOMENTS IN TIME: RALPH MILLER-ARTIST  (Lifelogs Ltd, $49.99) reveals Miller's gradual evolution, from childhood sketches to increasingly confident drawings and paintings of World War II in the Pacific. But it's his depictions of post-war Dunedin that show what a good artist he was. Deft, humorous and accomplished, they form a vivid portrait of the man and his times.
