Herzog” lower left. Housed in a carved giltwood frame. Biography (courtesy of AskART: The Artists’ Bluebook): Sometimes spelled Hermon, Hermann Herzog studied at the D”sseldorf Academy and established himself as an artist early in life, counting Emperor Alexander of Russia and Queen Victoria as his clients. He moved to Philadelphia in 1869 and became fascinated with the American landscape, traveling extensively. He was acclaimed for his ability to capture the changing effects of light and atmosphere and variations in terrain. He exhibited at the Centennial Exhibition in Philadelphia (where he won a medal) and the National Academy of Design. Sight: 19 1/4″ H x 26 1/2″ W . Framed: 25 5/8″ H x 32 1/2″ W.
