Charles Keith Miller (British, 1836–1907): Born in the port of Dundee, Scotland, Charles Keith Miller first went to sea at age 15. After 10 years of maritime service he was awarded his master’s certificate in 1861. Miller’s first known painting is dated 1872, during which time he was attempting to become a ship portrait painter to increase his income. He temporarily relinquished his captain’s service for the next six years to concentrate on maritime art. He briefly returned to sea in 1878 as master of the steamship Sandringham for two voyages, before finally retiring in 1888 to concentrate on his marine art.

Strathleven Steamer Passenger & Cargo Ship (1875-1901): The iron steamer was built in 1875 by Blackwood & Gordon in Port Glasgow, Scotland for William Burrell & Son. At 320 feet long, the Strathleven became central to the fresh and frozen goods trade during the 19th Century.
