The article deals with the analysis of paintings of planets in the château at Lnáře from the period after the middle of the 18th century, which were created according to graphics from the rich Augsburg output of Johann Georg Hertel (1700–1775). The Lnáře remnants of the cycle of planetary gods show a symbiosis of two principles. On the one hand, a long tradition, dating from late antiquity and maintained through late medieval and early modern graphic series; on the other hand, the impulses of progressive astronomical observations. The more or less receptive character of Hertel' series thus shows above all the emphasis on the contemporary fashion Rococo mode in which the figural compositions are embedded.
