The page has been taken from a sketchbook and has the binder holes at the top (easily covered by a mat when mounted). It is mounted in a folding mat that has an interesting sketch running alongside and behind the illustration. We are not certain if they were intended to go together, or if the artist simply used an old sketchpad to mount this piece.

He was a friend of Ernst Ludwig Kirchner. Muelleg’s works were regularly exhibited in the German regions of Switzerland during his lifetime, including an exposition in Bern in 1946 where his works were featured alongside the work of the French Nabis painter Edouard Vuillard.
