Richard Müller (TSCHIRNITZ 1874 - DRESDEN 1954)
Dead Hare in the Snow, 1929
signed with monogram and dated lower right '1929'
oil on canvas
705 x 1455mm
The iconography behind this image, as suggested by the artist, signifies the hare representing Europe, the Jackdaw as Germany and the Magpie as Russia. As can be seen in other works by Müller, one can see his preoccupation with the political situation in Europe at the time.
