William James Muller

William James Müller (28 June 1812 - 8 September 1845), English landscape and figure painter, the best-known artist of the Bristol School.

Müller was born at Bristol, the son of J. S. Müller, a Prussian who was a native of Danzig, curator of the Bristol museum.

He first studied painting under J. B. Pyne. His early subjects deal mainly with the scenery of Gloucestershire and Wales, and he learned much from his study of Claude, Ruysdael, and earlier landscape-painters.  In 1833 he figured for the first time in the Royal Academy with his Destruction of Old London Bridge-Morning, and next year he made a tour through France, Switzerland and Italy.

Four years later he visited Athens, extending his travels to Egypt  ...  Displaying 750 of 2509 characters.
