Who was Frank Duveneck (1848-1919)?

Frank Duveneck Self Portrait“After all’s said, Frank Duveneck is the greatest talent of the brush of his generation.” - John Singer Sargent

Born in Covington, Kentucky in 1848, perhaps no other artist has had such an influence on the growth and development of the Cincinnati Art Museum, its relationship to the people of Cincinnati, and his lasting legacy in the pantheon of great American artists. Duveneck was classically trained at the Munich Art Academy and alternated living and working between the United States and Europe for most of his active career. He later founded a school of painting in 1878 whose pupils included other celebrated American artists such as John Henry Twachtman, Otto Bacher, Julius Rolshoven, and John White Alexander. Duveneck also spent his later years serving as a professor at the Art Academy of Cincinnati and continued to be a magnanimous friend and benefactor of the Cincinnati Art Museum until his passing in 1919. The Cincinnati Art Museum retains the largest collection of his paintings, etchings, and drawings in the world and is excited to share the vibrant history and thoughtful realism of one of greatest American artists. Find The Whistling Boy and other great works by Frank Duveneck at the Cincinnati Art Museum.
