Frank Duveneck Sold at Auction Prices

Painter, Etcher, Sculptor, b. 1848 - d. 1919

Frank Duveneck (October 9, 1848 – January 3, 1919) was an American figure and portrait painter.

Early life: Duveneck was born in Covington, Kentucky, the son of German immigrant Bernhard Decker. Decker died in a cholera epidemic when Frank was only a year old and his widow remarried Joseph Duveneck. By the age of fifteen Frank had begun the study of art under the tutelage of a local painter, Johann Schmitt, and had been apprenticed to a German firm of church decorators.

While having grown up in Covington, Duveneck was a part of the German community in Cincinnati, Ohio, just across the Ohio River. However, due to his Catholic beliefs and German heritage, he was an outsider as far as the artistic community of Cincinnati was concerned.

Career: In 1869, he went abroad to study with Wilhelm von Diez and Wilhelm Leibl at the Royal Academy of Munich, where he learned a dark, realistic and direct style of painting. He subsequently became one of the young American painters—others were William Merritt Chase, John Henry Twachtman, Willis Seaver Adams and Walter Shirlaw—who in the 1870s overturned the traditions of the Hudson River School and started a new art movement characterized by a greater freedom of paint application.

Success: His work, at first ignored in Covington, attracted great attention when shown at the Boston Art Club in 1875, and pupils flocked to him in Germany and Italy, where he made long visits. Henry James called him "the unsuspected genius" and at the age of 27 he was a celebrated artist. In 1878, Duveneck opened a school in Munich, and in the village of Polling in Bavaria. His students, known as the "Duveneck Boys", included John Twachtman, Otto Henry Bacher, Julius Rolshoven, and John White Alexander.

Following the death of his wife in March 1888, he returned to America from Italy and gave some attention to sculpture, and modelled a fine monument to his wife, now in the Cimitero Evangelico agli Allori in Florence. Despite this activity, Elizabeth's death marked a slowing in his productivity; a wealthy man, he chose to lead a life of relative obscurity. He lived in Covington until his death in 1919 and taught at the Art Academy of Cincinnati,[5] where some pupils of note were Cornelia Cassady Davis, Ida Holterhoff Holloway, John Christen Johansen, M. Jean McLane, Edward Charles Volkert, Russel Wright, Charles Mills, and Herman and Bessie Wessel.

Among his most famous paintings are Lady with Fan (1873) and The Whistling Boy (1872), both of which reveal Duveneck's debt to the dark palette and slashing brushwork of Frans Hals. His work can be seen at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC, the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, the Cincinnati Art Museum, the Richmond Art Museum, the Hyde Collection in Glen's Falls, NY, the Kenton County Library in Covington, Ky, and the Cathedral Basilica of the Assumption, also in Covington and the Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center in Poughkeepsie, NY. A portrait, Young Man with Tousled Hair (the Street Urchin), now in the Smithsonian American Art Museum, was previously in the collection of Kurt Vonnegut. In 1905, he was elected into the National Academy of Design as an Associate member, and became a full Academician in 1906.

Personal life: On March 25, 1886, Duveneck married one of his students who was much admired by Henry James, Boston-born Elizabeth Boott. The two had been engaged off and on since 1881. They lived in Villa Castellani in Florence (where she had been raised) for two years. Together, they were the parents of a son, Frank Boott Duveneck. She died in Paris of pneumonia and, reportedly, Duveneck was devastated.

Later, Duveneck often spent summers in Gloucester, Massachusetts visiting his son and painting en plein air.

After his death in Cincinnati, Ohio on January 3, 1919, Duveneck was buried at the Mother of God Cemetery, in Covington.

A life-size bronze statue depicting Duveneck holding a plaque with his wife's picture on it stands in a small park at the intersection of Pike and Washington streets in Covington, Kentucky.

Born in Kentucky, Duveneck was active also in Germany and Italy, and specialised in painting portraits and figure studies.

      Frank Duveneck (American/Cincinnati, 1848-1919) Oil on canvas Signed l.r. Titled “Assisi”, and dated 1905 l.r. Period red-rimmed label to verso stretcher with full title “Lower Church of St. Francis of Assisi” Red painted accession number 1915.69 to verso stretcher Exhibition label from the Cincinnati University Club, “Annual Art Exhibition”, 1989 affixed to verso stretcher Size: 30.75" wd. x 22.25" ht. (sight) and 34.25" wd. x 22.75" ht. (framed) Frank Duveneck solidified his position as one of the fathers of the “Golden Age of Cincinnati Art” with several donations to the Cincinnati Art Museum prior to his death and with a bequest of much of his estate to the institution upon his passing in 1919.  Among them was this example, “Lower Church of St. Francis of Assisi”, given in 1915.  Another larger work (Accession number 1915.68) remains in the permanent collection of the Cincinnati Art Museum. The execution of this painting, as well as the larger extant example at the Cincinnati Art Museum coincides neatly with Duveneck’s involvement with the murals at the Cathedral Basilica of the Assumption, in Covington, KY.  As a devout Catholic and Covington resident, Duveneck spent over 4 years preparing for and producing a triptych set of murals for the Church, which he completed in 1909.  A wonderful excerpt from the Kentucky Post and Times-Star, dated August 14, 1905, is an early mention of Duveneck’s work on the murals:  “Frank Duveneck, the Covington painter, and Clement Barnhorn, the Cincinnati sculptor, are now in Munich studying designs for the mural decorations and paintings.  They will begin work immediately upon their return in the Fall.” Duveneck certainly went to Italy during this trip, though it is not covered in the periodicals of the day.  His association with Italy is well known- he took numerous trips there with his “Duveneck Boys”, a group of students including several of the foremost American Impressionists, and the artist’s own work from that area, which are considered some of his most important work.   It appears Duveneck produced two canvases in a short period of time of St. Francis of Assisi.  The view currently held at the Cincinnati Art Museum is an expansive study of the murals in the lower church, and it faces the same fence depicted in the example offered here.   In previous decades, the Cincinnati Art Museum held occasional deaccessioning sales.  The late Cincinnati art dealers Charles and Patricia Weiner (of Patricia Weiner Gallery) acquired this example from one such sale.   Provenance The artist Gifted by the above to the Cincinnati Art Museum, 1915 The Patricia Weiner Gallery Purchased from the above, Private Collection
