A German Artist and Print Maker

Mrs. Otto Mueller

Description: Althugh much older than most of the Great War generation, the German Expressionist Otto Mueller served from 1916-1918. He was 42 when he reported for duty. After the war, Mueller moved to Breslau where he taught at the art akademie in what is today's Wrocław, Poland. He had strong ties to Dresden and frequently traveled the short distance to that city from Breslau. It was there that he and his wife probably met Dix.
