German artist Franz von Stuck was best recognized for his ancient mythology paintings and his characteristic Symbolist style. His subjects were highly influenced by the works of Arnold Böcklin. Stuck personally designed the frames of his paintings with a great deal of care and attention. Franz Stuck’s oil on panel painting titled Lauschende Faune (Listening Fauns) is a key highlight of the upcoming sale from Soulis Auctions. Like other paintings by the influential 19th-century artist, this one too explores the darker side of the human psyche. Another German-born artist, Hermann Ottomar Herzog, was known for his realistic landscapes. A circa 1900 untitled view of a glacial lake by the artist leads the fine art listings. The oil on canvas portrays a sunlit blue mountain lake and snow-capped peaks.
