About this artwork
This collection consists of photographs documenting the sculptural work of Carl Milles, taken primarily by Meyric R. Rogers around 1938 and 1939 in preparation for his monograph on Milles, published in 1940. The sculptures photographed span almost the full length of Milles’s career and represent his work across the United States and in Sweden, however sculptures at Cranbrook Academy in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, and in Stockholm are the most commonly represented.
Collections may be accessed in the Franke Reading Room of the Research Center at The Art Institute of Chicago, by appointment only. For further information, consult the FAQ.
