Painter of the Island

In a career spanning six decades, Charles Henry Miller — in an effort to preserve a landscape being gutted by development — wandered the length and breadth of Long Island to record with paint, watercolor, chalk, pencil and charcoal multiple sketches and etched images of a bucolic Long Island starting in the 1870s. Some of his works are on display in an exhibit at the Phillips House museum in Rockville Centre until Nov. 10.
