I’ve been contributing over the past few years some of my personal research and findings on Frank Duveneck to various interest groups on the subject. 

For those not familiar with Frank Duveneck (1848 - 1919):

Often called the “Father of American Realism,” Frank Duveneck’s career spanned fifty-years – at a time when the dominant artistic styles in Europe and America passed from realism to impressionism and into modernism.  John Singer Sargent called Duveneck “the greatest talent of the brush of this generation”. Duveneck was friends with William Merritt Chase and "frienemies" with James Abbott McNeill Whistler.

Duveneck is celebrated for both his art and his legacy as an influential teacher. Unfortunately, his work has been overlooked for a number of years, and scholars are only recently beginning to understand the impact of his career.  For this reason, details on his whereabouts, specifically after 1900, can be quite difficult to both uncover and piece together.

He grew up in Covingt...

A few months ago, the studio moved to its current location (my basement) in St. Louis County. I've got space for individual lessons as well as my sectioned-off space for commissioned work and Zoom lessons. Here are a few images of my personal space. Clutter is my butter.

HANDS ARE HARD TO DRAW! So much so that I’ve taught a workshop just on drawing hands.

Well, i gave a condensed version of the lesson to a 16-ish yr old student a few months back.

She surprised me today when she showed me this great drawing from her sketchbook.
