Regular price $500.00

Franz Müller was a painter of religious subjects and of the folk and folkways of 19th century Germany. He was born in Dusseldorf in 1843.  He trained as a historical and portrait painter at the Düsseldorf Academy of Art, where he was educated, among others, by Karl Ferdinand Sohn, Ernst Deger and Eduard Bendemann, who very much influenced Müller in his way of painting.

This is one of four of a series of saints by his hand we have acquired. Each measures 7 3/4" x 9 1/2" and their handsome oak frames are 13 1/2" x 15 3/4".

The tag on the back reports that this image once formed part of the altar decoration in the church of St Remigius in Bonn and identifies the church figure portrayed as "the Evangelist Marcus".
