About the Artist

(1915-2010)  Wirth-Miller was born in Folkestone, Kent, in 1915, where his Bavarian father Johann Wirthmiller (Denis later Anglicised his name) ran a busy hotel. Wirth-Miller's mother moved him to Bamburgh in her home county of Northumberland, where he was raised by his grandmother.

After leaving school, Wirth-Miller joined Tootal Broadhurst Lee, the textile manufacturers in Manchester, where innate talent prompted his appointment as a designer.   During the 1940's he became acquainted with Francis Bacon, conversing with him on a near daily basis.  They shared interests in literature, philosophy, art, gambling and life in general.

With-Miller's early works were portraits, figures and still lifes, later a series of very large dog paintings – hounds on the move, mastiffs, great danes in motion in the act of turning or hunting or disappearing into the mist. Later works were East Anglian or Dartmoor landscapes.
