Notes: Exceedingly rare. A scarce pre-earthquake small-format woodblock print design. Artist monogram; lower right. In September 1920 Miller turned to the production of woodblock prints, looking to make a living as well as a name in art. This design is one of the earliest works created from her inception as a woodblock print artist.

Miller was visiting her parents in Seoul when the Great Kanto Earthquake struck on September 1, 1923. In the conflagration after the tremor, Miller's personal possessions were destroyed as were many finished prints, their blocks and her studio. Miller would fall seriously ill from the sudden shock of her loss, and produced no art for three years as she recuperated with her parents in Seoul, Korea.

Provenance: Acquired directly from a descendant of the L.M. Miller family. This was accompanied with the entire family collection of remaining works; including original paintings, pencil sketches and one of a kind proofs.
