Frank Duveneck, N.A, Cincinnati & Munich, 1848-1919. This oil on canvas of a bearded man is 28"h by 16"w in a period 4" frame. He was a highly influential artist & teacher of the late 19th century. He studied at the Munich Royal Academy from 1870-73, where he lived and worked the majority of his life. Except for returning to Cincinnati in 1874, he traveled between Munich, Venice and Florence until 1888. Duveneck taught many students in Florence as well in Boston until he joined the staff of Cincinnati Art Academy, where in 1905, he became Dean. Duveneck was a realist painter working in a robust Munich style who also showed some attributes of the Ashcan School. The light and color of Italy influenced Duveneck and his work became brighter and smoother in brushwork. He became a well-trained academic painter whose work ranged from single figures in interiors to plein air canvases of figures in landscape and often included the depiction of low-life persons. His styles included Realism, Social Realism, and Impressionism, and his work was ever influenced by the dark tones and vigorous brush-strokes of the Munich style, which he learned at the Munich Academy in the 1870s. Art historian Matthew Baigell described Duveneck's mature style as having "loose highlights brushed over ruggedly blocked-out forms emerging from a richly suggestive chiaroscuro." Duveneck bequeathed his collection to the Cincinnati Art Museum when he died in 1919. His work is in many museums and sells for up to $385,000.

"SOLD" 

Paul Cornoyer, 1864-1923,born in St Louis, MO, lived & worked in NYC & Gloucester, MA. This painting is in Gloucester, MA where he lived & worked. It is a lovely quiet masterpiece showing his exquisite use of light & shadow combined with perfect placement of lovely brushstrokes of color. It is oil on board, signed lower left, with the start of a second painting on the reverse side. It is 10 1/8"H by 13 1/4" W in good condition in the original early 20th Century frame (21" H by 24" W). He studied at the St Louis School of Fine Arts in 1881. His first works were in a Barbizon mode, and his first exhibit was in 1887. In 1889, he went to Paris for further training, studying at the Academie Julien, and returned to St. Louis in 1894. By the early 1890s, his work was more lyrical and Tonal, with subjects such as cityscapes and landscapes.In 1899, Cornoyer traveled to New York City, upon the encouragement of William Merritt Chase, who had acquired some of his work (probably the Parisian scene shown at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts annual in 1896-97). In New York, Cornoyer became a specialist in Tonal urban scenes, especially after rain with its blurred effects, his masterwork being The Plaza after Rain, purchased in 1910 by the new art museum of St. Louis. He was able to capture the wet, mirrored pavements with precision, streets with horse drawn carriages, trees, aligned buildings and streets. In addition, Cornoyer taught at the Mechanics Institute in New York, and later was an instructor in Massachusetts, moving there in 1917. He painted and exhibited his works up until his death in 1923.

Curran studied briefly at the Cincinnati Academy of Design, and moved to New York City in 1881. There he studied at the National Academy of Design, under Walter Satterlee, and the Art Students League. At age 23, he had his first public exhibition at the Academy. He was elected an Associate of the Academy in 1886 and a full Academician in 1888. He received the Academy’s Third Hallgarten Prize in 1889. From 1889 to 1891, Curran studied at the Académie Julian in Paris, where he studied with Benjamin Constant and Jules Joseph Lefebvre. He won an award at the Paris Salon of 1890. He also won prizes at the Columbian Exposition of 1893 in Chicago, the Paris Exposition of 1900, and the 1901 Pan-American Exposition in Buffalo, New York, of which he was the Assistant Director. In 1903, Curran was invited by artist Frederick Dellenbaugh to come to Cragsmoor, New York, an art center in the Hudson River Valley. Seven years later, Curran established a studio there. He would spend the next thirty years dividing his time between Cragsmoor and New York City. During this time, he taught at the Pratt Institute, the Cooper Union and the National Academy. Curran is best known for his paintings of female figures posed within picturesque vistas of the Cragsmoor area, and usually rendered in an impressionist style. The “new” women of these paintings embodied health and vigor. He also painted genre scenes, portraits and landscapes, as well as a series of views of the Imperial Temples of Peking. His paintings sell for up to $222,500 at auction and substantially more at private galleries.

HOLD 

George Inness N.A.,attributed, New York, New Jersey, 1825-1894. This golden glowing American Impressionist painting, "Landscape in Monclair, NJ " by Inness is 18" by 24" in a French style frame. It is signed G. Inness lower right. It is in good condition with evidence of small craquelure which has been restored and has been relined. Inness is considered to be one of the important Impressionist Painters in the Hudson River School. His paintings sell for up to $2 million. Inness is listed in Boswell, Dawdy, Fieldings, Hughes, Mallett, Samuels, and Who was Who in American Art. As with any artist worthy of the title, George Inness is not easily summed up. Often associated with the Hudson River School, he was, in fact, aesthetically in opposition to the large, detailed canvases which characterized the work of such painters as Thomas Cole (1801-1848) and Frederic Edwin Church (1826-1900), two major representative painters of that group. Others see him as a transplanted member of the French Barbizon School, more in tune with their less grandiose, more intimate landscapes of homely, domesticated scenes of rural France. Still others as the title of this exhibition* indicates see him as a visionary theorist, painting dreamy landscapes fraught with symbolic messages and meanings. And, like any artist, these and many other attempts at pigeonholing might well fit part of the man and his work.
