    Roger Mühl was born in 1929 in Strasbourg and knew very early that he would become an artist. He studied painting at the National School of Decorative Arts until 1952 when he decided to leave for Paris. Two years after, he met his wife, then settled at Montreux-Chateau and painted a lot. He displayed his first exhibit in 1960 at la “Galerie de Paris”. This is the beginnings of the artist’s international success: Paris, London, New York, Milan, Tokyo· All around the world, galleries want to have his paintings. The public likes his work, his colors, his nature. He lived in Alsace until 1965 and then moved to Mougins where he resided until his death, in April 2008. He loved the South of France because the light was so special and as all great painters, he was attracted by its transparency. “The light is my passion”.
