1759 - 1796
John Frederick Miller was the son of the artist Johann Sebastian Müller. Miller, along with his brother James, produced paintings from the sketches made by Sydney Parkinson on James Cook's first voyage. Together with the artist John Clevely, Miller accompanied the botanist Sir Joseph Banks in his scientific expedition to Iceland in 1772. They visited the Hebrides on their way north and Orkney on their return. Three years after their return, Miller worked up into watercolours the drawings that he had executed on the journey.
