This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

A painter and illustrator with a meticulous technique and symbolist* style, Richard Muller was a disciple of Max Klinger, and by 1897 had already won the Prix de Rome*, followed by a gold medal at the 1900 Paris Exposition.

At the age of 26 he was appointed Professor at the Dresden Academy of Art where he wielded immense influence on the generation of artists who succeeded the Expressionists*.  He was the leading light of the Neue Sachlichkeit (New Objectivity) movement.

Amongst his pupils were Otto Dix and Georg Grosz.  In 1935, under the Nazi regime he was forced out of his position of Director of the Academy.  His popularity waned as a result, but there is a new awareness of his work and reputation as an important influence in the first half of the 20th Century.  His etchings* are again highly collectable.
