CARL OTTO MÜLLER

(German, 1901-1970)

THE RED HAND-TOWEL

Oil on Board

8¾ x 6½ Inches

Signed Lower Left

 

A lyrical oil study of a young woman drying herself with a red hand--towel. Carl Otto Muller first studied at the Kunstgewerbschule in Munich under Caspar and, subsequently, at the Dortmund Kunstakademie. He furthered his studies in Paris and Italy. During a long and successful career, he was the recipient of numerous medals and prizes and juried awards. He was the subject of many solo-exhibitions including at the Koll-Austellung, (1947), the Stutttgart Kunstkabinett (1952), the Eichstadt Gewerbehalle and Munich’s Stadtgalerie (1955). Muller is known particularly for his subtle and psychologically-penetrating studies of women painted in a modulated post-Impressionist style reminiscent of Bonnard’s Intimism. We are pleased to offer this dynamic figural study from Muller's mature period.
