3. Henry Miller
He was a close friend of the French painter Grégoire Michonze. It is estimated that Miller painted 2,000 watercolors during his life, and that 50 or more major collections of Miller’s paintings exist.
You can view a selection of his watercolors at the Ransom Center at the University of Texas.

The result sometimes looked more like a 20th century abstract than a simple doodle.”
