Glass Mosaic Table by Berthold Muller, Germany, circa 1960, L 206 cm W 120 cm H 45 cm

German artist Berthold Muller (1893 – 1979) began his studies of sculpture in 1910 while still a schoolboy. In 1922, he converted to Catholicism and from then on, devoted himself to religious art.
Muller received many commissions for sculptures on church buildings and participated in significant exhibitions among which the “Exhibition of Religious Art” (Vatican Mission Exhibition -1925).
After the war, the artist rebuilt his mosaic workshop and made important contributions to the revival of the cultural life of the Lake Constance community.

Two monographs of his work were written as well as a “catalogue raisonné”.
