Charles Louis Muller entered the École des Beaux-Arts in 1831 where he studied under Baron Gros and Léon Cogniet. Three years later he began exhibiting at the Salon where he would contribute paintings each year for the rest of his working life. Muller was awarded numerous medals of honour at the Salon including first-class medals in 1848 and 1855. He was made a Chevalier of the Légion d’Honneur in 1849, and an Officer in 1850. Perhaps the crowning achievement of Muller’s career came when he was commissioned to decorate ceilings in the Louvre Museum with four compositions representing periods in the history of French art.
