Maeve Miller ’22 explores forms of intimacy across the history of art and the tensions between them by looking closely at Summer Scene (1869-1870) by the French painter Jean Frédéric Bazille; Prince Shōtoku at Age Two, a sculpture from 13th-century Japan, and The Vanity of the Artist’s Dream (1830) by the American painter Charles Bird King.

Maeve Miller is a junior in Pforzheimer House concentrating in History of Art & Architecture, as well as pursuing a secondary in Film Production. She is an avid ceramicist and loves to travel, scuba dive, and run. Her favorite art movement is Surrealism, and her favorite artist is Salvador Dalí.
