William James Muller (1812-1845)

William James Müller was an English landscape and figure painter, born in Bristol, his father, a Prussian, being curator of the museum there.

He first studied painting under James Baker 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.

Four years later he visited Athens, extending his travels to Egypt, and in the sketches executed during this period and the paintings produced from them his power and individuality are apparent.

In 1843 he accompanied, at his own request and his own charges, the government expedition to Lycia, where he made a number of masterly sketches. He died in Bristol in 1845.
