Müller’s Nude in a Landscape reflects the early emphasis by Die Brücke artists on the harmony of humans and nature. The artists frequently retreated to the countryside where they enjoyed an unfettered existence. At the same time, Mueller’s centered composition positions itself alongside classical and Old Master images of nymphs and goddesses ensconced in nature.
