Minimum Bid: $300.00
Sold Price: $1,121.25 (includes buyer's premium)


Vividly realized original painting by Henry Miller depicting two abstract figures in close-up with a third seated in the background, accomplished in watercolor on 20.75 x 16.75 artist paper, signed below in black ink, "Henry Miller, Sommières, 1967," who adds an inscription in watercolor to lower left, "For friend Joe, a distinguished failure." Attractively cloth-matted and framed with an engraved plaque to an overall size of 29.75 x 26. In fine condition. Over his lifetime, Miller painted over 2000 watercolors but sold few, preferring to give them to friends or sometimes trade them for food and supplies. The "Joe" to whom this painting is inscribed is likely Joe Gray, an actor, stuntman, and close friend of Miller's.
