Made by artist in his native Estonia, shortly before his departure (1926) to the USA, and (still) signed in cyrillic. This large watercolor belongs to a series of scenes with Russian Orthodox priests, which the artist completed (as illustrations for a book?) between 1920-1926. A similar and of same size watercolor from the mentioned cycle CLICK HERE was sold by our gallery a few years ago.

The author of these watercolors was a well-known Estonian-American artist Paul Muller (1895 Estonia - 1970 New York).

At the age of sixteen the artist joined the Russian army, where he was a musician in one of the household regiments in St.Petersburg. After the First World War he worked in Budapest, then studied in Prague, Dresden and in his native Estonia. There he worked as a sketch artist for a newspaper. In 1926 Muller went to the USA and settled down in New York City. He worked as an illustrator for "Encyclopaedia Britannica", designed one of the first meter-stamp postmarks for the government. Sadly, the artist had a drinking problem and ended his life as a janitor. During his later years he continued painting, but his compositions turned very phantasmagoric, often mixing references to war events and religious figures (information was taken from www.askart.com).
