"The part that the Medicis played in Renaissance Italy can be best approximated today by such great corporations as those that I have named and the fact that the Miller [Company] recently won an award for having made the best use of the fine arts to promote high standard in the [caliber] of their own products is truly significant." (Adelyn D. Breeskin, Director, Baltimore Museum of Art, excerpt from speech, 4 April 1948.)

The Baltimore museum was the fourth venue of 28(+) that exhibited the Painting toward architecture exhibition (1947-52). The PtA-era at the Miller Co. was the start of the art purchasing and extensive lending work of Burton and Emily Hall Tremaine. Before PtA, Mrs. Tremaine worked in the publishing field.

The following is a developing list of exhibitions including artworks owned by the Tremaines, currently roughly estimated at over 850. Very active lenders, this compilation includes works exhibited under the Miller Company Collection of Abstract Art (Meriden, CT) name (Burton was CEO of the company and Emily was its art director / exhibition organizer) and many works were lent as "Mr. & Mrs. Burton Tremaine, Meriden, CT" where many works were reportedly held. The Tremaines lived in Madison, CT, about 35 miles away, and also in New York City. The Tremaines were also very active in the design field, including graphics, product design, interior design concepts and commissioning architecture, especially c. 1945-55.

(Researchers should consider the listings carefully as most often exhibition inclusion has not been confirmed at the exhibition checklist and installation photograph level. The sources of the information are listed below each entry.)
