Duveneck Association Information

Established in 1980, the Duveneck Association engages Cincinnati Art Museum members by broadening knowledge of the Museum’s encyclopedic collection, special exhibitions and art in our communities. Monthly programs include engaging presentations and conversations with Museum curators,  visits to neighboring arts organizations, and special tours of private collections.

The Duveneck Association honors Frank Duveneck (1848-1919), born in Covington, KY. At a young age, Duveneck studied in Munich, Germany, developing his special style of expressive brushwork and deep-toned palette.  Continuing his work in Florence, and later in the United States, Duveneck became a well known and respected figure and portrait painter.  In 1880, he was elected  a member of the Society of American Artists, and  further recognition and honors continued through his life.  Before his death in 1919, he donated a large and important group of his work to the Cincinnati Art Museum.
