Robert Miller (born April 17, 1939, Atlantic City, New Jersey — d. June 22, 2011, El Portal, Florida) was an American art dealer in New York City. His art gallery, located first (in 1977) on 5th Avenue, later in the Fuller Building on East 57th Street, and finally on 26th Street in Chelsea (all in Manhattan) continues to be a leading gallery exhibiting the works of contemporary artists including Lee Krasner, Joan Mitchell, Robert Mapplethorpe, Louise Bourgeois, Roberto Juarez, Alice Neel, Robert Graham and Yayoi Kusama, all of whom Miller represented at some point. In 2002 Miller retreated from the current business and left the gallery to his wife Betsy Wittenborn Miller and his son Robert Peter Miller.

Miller's career as a gallerist began in the 1960s as an assistant at the André Emmerich Gallery at 41 East 57th Street. The Emmerich gallery exhibited many leading artists of the time; and Miller learned the business by working in the field with some of the most important artists of his time.[1]

Death[edit]

Robert Miller died on June 22, 2011, aged 72, at his home in El Portal, Florida from an infection.
