The Duveneck Association dates to 1980, when it was formed as the Men’s Committee. The name changed in 1991 in order to expand membership to include women and to honor an important Cincinnati artist.
Members of the Cincinnati Art Museum are eligible to join the Association. Membership includes monthly luncheon meetings to hear various experts discuss current exhibitions or some aspect of the Art Museum’s permanent collection, or to take an off-site tour to a collection of interest.
Through its fund-raising activities, the Association donates a significant monetary gift to the Art Museum each year. Beneficiaries have included (but not been limited to) restorations of works of art, renovations to galleries, the renovation of the Schmidlapp Gallery and renovation of –and equipment purchases for–the Art Museum’s esteemed Conservation Lab.
Frank Duveneck (1848 -1919) was a native of Covington, Kentucky. As a teenager, he apprenticed to church decorators. Showing promise, he was sent to study at the Royal Academy in Munich in 1869. There he abandoned plans for pursuing church commissions and mastered the bravura brush techniques practiced by the Munich school. Winning prizes and finding success at exhibitions, he quickly became a leading artist and important expatriate among American realist painters.
Colleagues included William Merritt Chase, John Henry Twachtman and many others.
In 1890, Duveneck returned to Cincinnati to teach at the Art Academy, where he became is director in 1904. He was an active member of the Cincinnati Art Club, serving as president in 1896-98. In his lifetime, Duveneck influenced many artists and their work.
