An appreciative retrospective of the art of a noted turn-of-the century painter. A leading practitioner of the Barbizon and Impressionist styles dominating the progressive American art scene at the turn of the century, Gaines Ruger Donoho (1857-1916) has attracted little scholarly attention since his death. His work was exhibited regularly at the Paris Salon during the 1880s and attracted the critical admiration of noted artists such as James McNeill Whistler and Pierre C. Puvis de Chavannes. In 1889 he was awarded a silver medal at the University Exposition in Paris, one of the most important exhibitions of the period. Returning to New York in 1887, Donoho was associated with a group that included Childe Hassam, John Twachtman, Frank Benson and Edmund Tarbell, among others of the most advanced artists working in America at that time. Donoho's works were shown in numerous exhibitions at art galleries, academies and museums, and he became recognized as one of America's most promising artists. Among the first of the early modern American artists to move to Long Island, a significant venue, for the evolution of American landscape painting, Donoho continued to develop his art in a way that suggests the reciprocal influences of Childe Hassam, J. Alden Weir, John Twachtman and William Merritt Chase

The records of Milch Gallery document the business transactions of the corporation and the professional and personal relationships of the Milch brothers with the artists they represented, as well as with the larger community of artists and art dealers between 1911 and 1980. Unfortunately, early correspondence is sparse. In a letter responding to a 1951 request for historical information, Milch replied: "Several years ago [1947] we had to give up our gallery at 108 West 57th Street, and move to smaller quarters here. Since we had no room for old records, we had to destroy most of them."
