As I said before, Heinrich Vogeler and Heinrich Max Vogel are two different artists. We did a post on the former last month; now we shall do a post on the latter. This first painting reminds me of the work of Léon Fréderic (whom we will be getting to at some point), and at first I thought it was his work, but it clearly bears Vogel’s signature. At any rate, it is most certainly a Symbolist piece. The only version of the image I could find has a Swedish title rather than a German, and while I’m not exactly sure what it says, since I am much better at reading German than I am Swedish, I think it translates to something like “Playing Children and the Frog Prince”—the Frog Prince is hard to see, but he’s located near the bottom center of the painting.
