Arthur Herzog

Self-portrait by Arthur Charles Henri Herzog. 

Herzog was an artist born in Switzerland in 1862 and deceased in 1913. He is known for his Swiss landscapes and Orientalist scenes. In 1897, he made a long trip to Egypt and brought back new Orientalist paintings from this trip. He left Switzerland again in 1900 to take up a professorship at the National Internado of Chile.

He returned in 1905 and exhibited at the Friends of the Arts in Neuchâtel. Long forgotten, this traveling painter was rediscovered from the 2000s.
