Milton has experienced a double passion in his life: he spent forty-seven years teaching literature and writing on the college level and during that period he also actively pursued his interest in painting and sculpture.
During his adolescence and the years that followed, Milton was drawn to the paintings of Picasso, Matisse and Braque. He loved their visual simplifications, their deliberate and creative distortions of factual reality. In his early years, Milton was intrigued also by the work of Kandinsky and Mondrian. Their work struck him as form of visual music, stirring the feelings through the eye as music stirs the feelings through the ear. In Mondrian, he also saw the beauty of two-dimensionality and the exciting dialogue between form and space.
