Heinrich Hermanns is one of the most famous Rhine landscape painters in the late 19th and early 20th century.
As a student of Eugen Dücker he founded, alongside with Olof Jernberg, Eugen Kampf and Helmut Liesegang, the "Lucas-Club", the most advanced combination of landscape painters in Dusseldorf in the 1890th.
The new features of this advanced Painters Association concerned the choice of images, such as the artistic style alike: Instead of the familiar images of northern and southern Europe, that Andreas and Oswald Achenbach successfully painted a few years ago, the Lower Rhine and Dutch landscapes are richer in colour and have a wide colour range. Heinrich Hermanns displayed his works at major German art exhibitions and had great success in the 1920's. His works can be found in European and American collections as well as in numerous German museums.
