He was the son and pupil of Franz Hubert Müller (director of the Darmstadt Gallery), and afterwards studied in Munich under Schnorr and Cornelius, and in Düsseldorf under Sohn and Schadow. On his return from Italy, where he stayed in 1837-42, he executed some famous frescoes at Remagen and Sigmaringen. In these works he was assisted by his son Franz (1843—). From 1856 till 1882 Andreas was professor at the Düsseldorf Academy. He was noted for his skill in restoring old or damaged pictures.
