Muller was primarily a genre and landscape artist who became famous for founding the Austrian school of Orientalist painting. He studied at the Vienna Academy under Karl von Blaas and Christian Ruben. From 1862-1867, Müller worked as a historical illustrator for the Vienna office of Le Figaro.He traveled extensively to Hungary, Italy and Egypt and maintained studios in Venice (1870-72), Sicily (1872-3) and Cairo (1873-1880's). In Cairo, Müller was to meet Edward, Prince of Wales and the English art dealer Henry Wallis. Wallis was to be responsible for the sale of a large number of Müller’s paintings to London collectors. Müller first travelled to London in 1875 and then visited the city regularly. Between 1873 and 1886 he was in Egypt as many as nine times, usually staying for extended periods and usually in the winter months. He was a popular figure in Viennese Academy circles. He was appointed professor at the Academy in 1877 and elevated to the post of rector in 1890-91.
