Kenneth Hayes Miller

Kenneth Hayes Miller (March 11, 1876 – January 1, 1952) was an American painter and teacher.


Born in Oneida, New York, he studied at the Art Students League of New York with Kenyon Cox, Henry Siddons Mowbray and with William Merritt Chase at the New York School of Art.[1][2] His early works were influenced by the paintings of his friend Albert Pinkham Ryder, and depict figures in phantasmagorical landscapes.[3]

After 1920 Miller became interested in the underpainting-and-glazing techniques of the old masters, which he employed in painting contemporary scenes.

He is especially noted for his many paintings of women shopping in department stores.[3]

By the time of his death in New York City in 1952, his reputation was in eclipse, but he was rediscovered in the 1970s.[3]


Miller taught at the Art Students League from 1911 until 1951.[3] His students include: Peggy Bacon, Isabel Bishop, Arnold Blanch, Patrick Henry Bruce, John McCrady, Thelma Cudlipp, Horace Day, Arnold Friedman, Lloyd Goodrich, Rockwell Kent, Yasuo Kuniyoshi,[4] Emma Fordyce MacRae, Edward Middleton Manigault, Reginald Marsh, Walter Tandy Murch, Louise Emerson Ronnebeck, George Tooker, Russel Wright, Albert Pels and William C. Palmer.
