Richard Muther (art historian)

Richard Muther Richard Muther (1860–1909) was a German critic and historian of art, born at Ohrdruf in Germany.

He studied at Heidelberg and at Leipzig, where he took his doctor's degree. In 1895 he became professor of art history at the University of Breslau.

He was one of the more prominent German art historians of his time, although he has been described as more popular with the general public than with the art fraternity of his day. The Russian artist Alexandre Benois wrote of Muther's appeal by saying that his ideas, "became common property and permeated the society so much that even the most conservative people started using 'Muther's parlance'".

He wrote [https://catalog.hathitrust.org/Record/000345840 ''Geschichte der Malerei''] (five volumes, 1899–1900); which appeared in English as [https://catalog.hathitrust.org/Record/000346144 ''The history of painting from the fourth to the early nineteenth century''] (2 volumes, 1907), translated and edited by George Kriehn. In 1907 [https://catalog.hathitrust.org/Record/000346367 ''The history of modern painting''] (4 volumes) was published in English.

He was also the author of books on Leonardo da Vinci (1900), Lucas Cranach (1903), Rembrandt (1904), Francisco Goya (1904), Diego Velázquez (1907), Jean François Millet (1907) and Gustave Courbet (1908). His ''Die deutsche Bücherillustration der Gothik und Frührenaissance'' was later translated into English and published as ''German book illustration of the Gothic period and the early Renaissance (1460–1530)'' (1972).
