Roger Mühl was a 20th-century French painter best known for his minimal and light filled landscapes of the South of France. Mühl’s paintings often feature built-up impasto surfaces and utilize complimentary colors and neutral tones, creating both atmosphere and physicality in his subtle compositions. Born on December 20, 1929 in Strausbourg, France, he went on to attend the local National School of Decorative Arts. He spent most of his life living and working in Provence while exhibiting in London, Paris, Geneva, Tokyo, and New York. Mühl died on April 4, 2008 in Mougins, France.
