This biography from the Archives of AskART:


Herzog was born in Philadelphia on 15 October 1868.  His father Hermann Herzog (1831-1932) was also a painter, originally from Bremen, Germany and known for his mountain landscapes.  Lewis studied and traveled in London, Berlin, Düsseldorf, Munich, Rome, and Venice.  A sketchbook labeled “Düsseldorf” dated 1888 and another inscribed “1890,” with scenes of Venice, verify these travels, and in 1893, he won an Honorable Mention at the International Art Exhibition in Berlin. 

Back in Philadelphia, he submitted works to the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (in 1893 and 1898), all images of Europe.  Also in 1898 he received a commission from Harper’s to execute illustrations of the Spanish-American War.  In 1904, Herzog won a bronze medal at the St. Louis Universal Exposition, where he showed The Mackerel Boats and Nantucket Dunes.  In 1912, his Quiet Evening was part of the National Academy of Design’s Winter Exhibition. 

During World War I, Herzog worked in one of the U.S. Navy’s camouflage outfits.  Records show that he exhibited twice in 1921: with the Society of Independent Artists (The Noon Hour Pasture) and with the Pennsylvania Academy (Winter Twilight).  Unlike his father, Herzog Jr. developed a bold, painterly style.  Canal in Venice (ca. 1899) features a gondola moving by swiftly, and thick impasto that vaguely suggests the figures. 

Herzog died while traveling by train between Quantico, Virginia and Washington, DC on 27 May 1943.
