In 1986, from the Lithographic Portfolio "Provence"
One of Mühl's major sources of creativity throughout his career was light. It was in the south of France that he found the intense, bright sunlight that inspired him most. In this series of original signed lithographs, the artist depicts the landscapes around his home in Provence. These works were created to illustrate texts and poems written by French author Marcel Pagnol.
Marcel Paul Pagnol was a French novelist, playwright, and filmmaker. He was born in 1895 in Aubagne, Provence. While he is still generally regarded as one of France's greatest 20th-century writers, he became the first filmmaker elected to the Académie française.
