Hermann Ottomar Herzog was born in Bremen, Germany and entered the Düsseldorf Academy with Andreas Achenbach, who promoted a refined and detailed technique. During the 1850s and ‘60s, Herzog traveled throughout Europe, depicting various sublime landscapes with raging waterfalls and roiling skies. Such early works garnered favorable attention at the Paris Salon and at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and attracted distinguished patrons, including the Countess of Flanders, Emperor Alexander II of Russia, Queen Victoria, and Duke Ernest of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha.
Herzog’s paintings are in numerous museum collections nationwide, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington, D.C.; Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; Crocker Art Museum, Sacramento; Cincinnati Art Museum; and Reading Public Museum, Reading, Pennsylvania.
