Like Albert Bierstadt, Herman Herzog’s training at the art academy in Dusseldorf led him to paint sweeping Romantic landscapes with vertiginous cataracts and storm shrouded peaks. However, the external turmoil in Herzog’s conceptions of Nature describes a duality, a Manichean yin and yang battle between darkness and light–the beautiful and the sublime–in the universe. You can see the dichotomy at play here: the foreground, at right, is sublime, shadowed and eerie, while the thin stream of the falls seems to descend from another realm. At right, the sun moves from cool to bright where an eagle soars in the dazzle.
