Fritz Müller was sea captain and private teacher for nautical practice by profession. He nearly exclusively portrayed the larger local vessels in a well balanced composition with a lively background, e.g. a harbour view or other shipping. He later moved to the United States where he joined the Union troops and was apparently killed in action during the civil war. Information about the artist and his oeuvre can also be found in our book "Ship Portrait Artists".
