    Roger Mühl , born 20 December 1929 in Strasbourg , died 4 April 2008 in Mougins, was a painter , draftsman and sculptor French. He joined the National School of Decorative Arts in Strasbourg where he graduated in 1948 to go to the territory of Belfort. He settled in 1954 in Montreux-Chateau and had his first exhibition in Paris at the Galerie de Paris in 1960. Then he went to Geneva, London, Milan, Dallas, Cologne, Stuttgart, Tokyo, Kyoto, Belfort and New York . He basically worked on the French Riviera.

    Of his painting, it was written:

    "He was considered a figurative painter of Provence and also of landscapes---a foremost painter of light and atmosphere. He used an impasto technique to establish the outlook suggested by the single color. "
    - Patrice Mühl honorary expert

    "I think that each subject has its own color. The key is to disengage, the most important is its ripening. It is not to live a color with a complementary or opposite, but by layers that give it its inner breathing, it must be sufficient and live itself. An important phenomenon: radiation, it is pretty much in the sensitivity of the artist, who at the time found that will capture ripening. It was at this time that the color acquires a certain expression of pure language. "

    - Christine Gleiny, Mühl Editions Fernand Mourlot, 1963, p 27.
