One of Muralt’s most dedicated and ambitious undertakings is his series Deep Sea Anglers, which grew out of the artist’s desire to practice the technique of pointillism on a daily basis. After the course of one year, Muralt’s steady exploration of these wild creatures resulted in a collection of more than 140 different illustrations. The various species are carefully and precisely depicted, and as a consequence of Muralt’s frank, Audubon-like renderings, the unique and individual characteristics of each fish are highlighted. Depicted in vertical succession, slight disparities in antennae, fins and girths become increasingly evident, as the viewer is encouraged to closely read and examine each meticulous drawing. A complete compilation of Muralt’s deep sea anglerfish will be printed in a forthcoming book. Read Less
