Henry Miller was an American novelist known for developing a new sort of ‘novel’ that was a mixture of autobiography, social criticism, philosophical reflection, and surrealist free association. Around 1930 Miller moved to Paris where he would live until the outbreak of  WWII. This period was highly creative for Miller, and many of his best known works were written during his time there. In 1940 Miller returned to the United States, settling in Big Sur, California. Henry Miller’s work challenged contemporary American cultural values and was banned in the United States on the grounds of obscenity. His novels were smuggled into the country, building Miller an underground cult reputation. He would go on to become a major influence on the new Beat generation of American writers, most notably Jack Kerouac. Miller also wrote travel memoirs, essays, and was an accomplished painter. It is estimated that Miller painted 2000 watercolors during his life.
