Peter Milton was born in Lower Merion, Pennsylvania in 1930. He studied at Yale for both his BFA (1954) and his MFA (1962). In the next eight years, while teaching at the Maryland Institute, he participated in over 100 national and international exhibitions. Twice yearly during the seven years he taught at the institute, the Franz Bader Gallery in Washington gave him one-man shows. These and other one-man shows at the Baltimore Museum of Art (1967), and the Print Club (Philadelphia 1967), in South America and Europe provided important exposure of his work. He has received a number of grants, among them a Tiffany. His work has been collected not only by the Museum of Modern Art, and the Brooklyn Museum but also more than 25 universities.
