William H. Muller Hewitt (1848-1921)
A.K.A. "W. H. Muller Hewitt"

Landscape painter.  Born in Backwell, Somerset, England, the son of English landscape painter Henry Hewitt (1818-1879) and his wife, Eliza Ann Hewitt (b. 1826).  The family resided in Bristol, Gloucestershire, England for many years.  While not specifically known, it is likely that he had his earliest training at the hands of his father.

Muller-Hewitt was known for his watercolor sketches of the English countryside, especially scenes in the Lake District in Cumbria, in the seaside resort town of Littlehampton in Sussex, on the Isle of Man, in Dartmoor, and general scenes along the Thames River, as well as at other locations in Great Britain.  Though he primarily worked in watercolor, examples of his work in oil are known, though they appear less frequently.  They are often signed "W. H. Muller Hewitt."

His paintings appear to have been popular during his lifetime and were well exhibited in England and on other parts of the British Empire, including Australia.  They were featured there as early as 1889, when the gallery of Foster & Kelk in Brisbane advertised "This is the first opportunity the Australian Public have had of purchasing this Artist's Work."  His works were also exhibited at Trinity University College in Carmarthen, Wales.  Later in his life he published the small booklet, "What Do the Artists Think about the Royal Academy?" in London in 1909.

He was residing in Saffron Walden, Essex, England at the time of his death in 1921 at the age of seventy-three.  

It is not known what exhibitions other than those mentioned above in which he may have participated and his works are not known to be in any public institutions at present.  The largest numbers of his works reside in private collections throughout the World.
