Born Henrietta Myers in 1913, the surrealist American painter known as Peter Miller graduated from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (PAFA) in 1934. In an effort to ensure fair evaluation of her work, Henrietta changed her name to Peter Miller in 1935, believing her art would be more positively received when attributed to a male creator. Peter's extraordinary 250-piece collection was found in a barn during COVID, and restored by Princeton University conservator and gallerist Paul Gratz. Peter Miller's paintings are in the permanent collections of the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts.
