CARL WILHELM MÜLLER (1839 Dresden 1904)

Rock in the Plauenscher Grund

Watercolour over pencil on laid paper. 20,6 × 14 cm. Inscribed and dated in pencil lower left: "Pl. Gr. 7th Mai 61."

According to the inscription, the drawing was executed in 1861. The Plauenscher Grund nearby Dresden was of interest to painters due to its picturesque rock formations.
The draughtsman must be a pupil of Ludwig Richter, since the linear style closely resembles his master's. The veristic close-up view of the rocks as well as the scrawly style of drawing plants are elements that can be found in Müller's works.
The latter, as well as Albert Venus and Viktor Paul Mohn formed a group of highly talented landscapists, who travelled to Bohemia in 1861.
