Hans Muller was born in Vienna Austria on January 10th 1873. He was a pupil of the sculptor Edmund Hellmmer at the Vienna Academe of Art. Although he is best known for his portraits and busts of the more famous of Viennese society, he modeled a few animal sculptures mostly of hunting dogs. Very little is known or has been written about this talented Austrian artist other than the many works he produced. Much of his work is on permanent display in the Simu Museum in Bucharest, Hungary.
