Catel Muller

Catel Muller, a graduate of the Haute école des arts du Rhin in Strasbourg, France, specializes in graphic novels that portray remarkable women. Her account of the life of the writer and feminist pioneer Benoîte Groult received the Artémisia prize for a graphic narrative by a female artist. Since then, her “bio-graphical” depictions of history’s forgotten women—Kiki de Montparnasse, Olympe de Gouges, and Josephine Baker—have been published and translated around the world. Awarded the prestigious Prix Diagonale Jury Prize in 2018 for her sustained achievement, Catel has established herself as one of the finest graphic novelists of our time.
