This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Alexander M. Muller was born in Milwaukee Wisconsin.  Several years previous the artist's parents had made the decision to join America's melting pot culture.  When in his teens he studied under many noted teachers, including  Max Thedey, Carl Marr (1858-1936), and Richard Lorenz. (1858-1915).

Muller became an honored member of  The Wisconsin Painters and Sculptors Society and was included in the Society of Milwaukee Artists.  He served as director of the Milwaukee Art Center but moved to California, where he lived most of his life.

Muller produced a variety of works throughout his career.  He was resourceful.  He was a teacher and lecturer; above all, he was a practicing artist who worked in a variety of mediums. He was also an excellent draughtsman.  He executed some portraits of attractive female models as his subjects.  Frequently, he used watercolor, charcoal or crayon but primarily worked in oils.

His paintings are usually carefully executed with great attention to detail.  Alexander Muller was influenced by his teachers who were advocates of Classic taste.  They incorporated this tradition with the ideas that evolved at the Munich Art Academy, an influence which flourished in the late 19th century.  In fact Carl von Marr, who was born in Milwaukee, eventually became head of the Munich Academy.
