"In June 1840 he [Müller] travelled to France, following a commission to make drawings for a book of plates which was published in August 1841 by Henry Graves & Co. as Müller's Sketches of the age of Francis 1st. Although the period figures were probably drawn by Louis Haghe, the lithographer, the book demonstrates Müller's exceptional competence as an architectural draughtsman."-- Oxford dictionary of national biography
