Nachume Miller


Nachume the Artist

"He saw and interpreted a landscape of nature and life and feelings, he harnessed life and took paint and put it into a language we could understand with our eyes and then our hearts. How did he do that? How could he take reality and abstract it and give back to us an incredibly concentrated, overwhelming essence of an experience? He did that, over and over again. His knowledge of painting - practical, scientific, historical - was staggering. As most of us, I've gone to the MoMa for years. When I went with Nachume, I felt that I must have been blind during my other visits, wearing dark glasses. If only I could remember what he said." -Kathleen Seward, Friend
