Otto Mueller


 


 

Otto Mueller

(b Liebau, Silesia [now Libawka, Poland], 16 Oct 1874; d Breslau [now Wroclaw, Poland], 24 Sept 1930).

German painter and printmaker. His mother was said to have been a gypsy, although this was never proved. He began his artistic training with an apprenticeship as a lithographer from 1890 until 1894 in Görlitz, Silesia. From 1894 to 1896 he studied at the Kunstakademie in Dresden. He returned to Silesia, however, travelling occasionally, for example to Switzerland, Italy and Munich. Towards the end of 1908 he moved to Berlin, where he joined the Neue Sezession, an exhibiting group formed in 1910 in protest at the rejection of younger artists’ work by the Berliner Sezession, which had a conservative tendency. In this circle he met some of the painters of DIE BRÜCKE and he became a member of the group in 1910.
